Vick mural in Philly shows him choking dog


A mural has appeared on the side of a tire store in Philadelphia, depicting Michael Vick in his new Eagles uniform, choking a dog in a Dallas Cowboys uniform.

The mural is painted on the side of a shop called “Tires ‘R’ Us” in Philadelphia’s Kensington section. A photo was taken and uploaded to Flickr by k.vonponyfeather.

Vick, who served an 18-month federal prison sentence for dogfighting, made his return to the NFL last night.

This is in such poor taste. The rivalry between the Eagles and Cowboys is one thing — but to use Vick’s HORRIFIC offenses to illustrate it — I think everyone should refuse to use this business’ services.

The painting of Vick, thankfully, has since been painted over with a blank canvas. I don’t know whether the business did the original or just someone in the neighborhood.
