Atlanta Falcons’ Quarterback Michael Vick’s guilty plea this week has thrust the brutal game of dog fighting into the national spotlight. However, Trigg County Humane Society Director Ramona Hamilton and Cadiz Police Chief Hollis Alexander said they have seen little, if any, evidence of dog fighting operations in Cadiz or Trigg County.

“There used to be dog fights in the county, but if they still do, then they are being awfully careful to keep it under wraps. There used to be cock fights in Linton, but I haven’t heard about it in years,” said Hamilton.

Alexander said, “We’ve seen no evidence of dog fighting in Cadiz or Trigg County. That doesn’t mean it’s not happening, as there is always a possibility it’s out there, but we haven’t seen it.”

Hamilton derided Vick, who is expected to be sentenced this fall in Federal court. “He should have a lifetime ban from being a hero to kids. It is inexcusable for anyone to do this, much less a role model.”

He has been suspended indefinitely from the National Football League where he was the starting quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons.
