Michael Vick tells 60 Minutes of his tears in jail
Michael Vick really “cares” about animals, he told 60 Minutes on Sunday.
The disgraced NFL player served 18 months in prison for running an illegal dog fighting operation that involved beating, shooting, and electrocuting hundreds of pit bulls.
“When I was in prison, I was disgusted, you know, because of what I let happen to those animals. I could’ve put a stop to it,” he said.
“And that was the reason I cried so many nights,” he said.
Vick, who recently signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, told 60 Minutes that he would devote himself to teaching disadvantaged kids to be kind to animals in the future. (NY Daily News)
