Blue Belles' Kentucky Derby Death: Is Michael Vick to Blame?

Turd FergusonCorrespondent IMay 5, 2008

With the death of Eight Belles in the Kentucky Derby aftermath yesterday, one can only question if the existence of cruelty to animals in sports is a direct result of Michael Vick's continued impact.

Even from jail, could Vick has orchestrated the death of Blue Belles? The answer is an unequivocal yes. 

Just look at the evidence that continues to pile up:

  1. Vick hates animals.
  2. Blue Belles is a horse, commonly known as a member of the animal species.
  3. As a member of the Atlanta Falcons, Vick once lost to the Denver Broncos, an embarrassment he swore to one day avenge.
  4. Vick comes from an anti-equine "street" culture in which horses ain't cool.

So there you have it, irrefutable proof that the disgraced Michael Vick is responsible for Blue Belles' death.

And don't worry, PETA has already been notified.
