Effort underway to deny Michael Vick the Ed Block Courage Award

Hat tip to Pet Connection and YesBiscuit!.

Pet Connection has an article about the online petition to try to get the Ed Block Courage Award denied to Michael Vick.

YesBiscuit! has a link to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution article entitled Michael Vick got adrenaline rush while killing dogs.

And his teammates want to give him an award from a foundation that according to its website " dedicated to improving the lives of neglected children and ending the cycle of abuse" and "That objective is coupled with the Foundation's commitment to celebrating players of inspiration in the NFL". And the Foundation gave the award (so its website leads me to believe).

WTF???? Since when did vicious animal abuse rooted in money constitute courage?

Any future candidates should refuse the Ed Block Courage Award, so that they are not in the same company as Michael Vick.
