Do remember where you were when you heard the news of football star Michael Vick being busted for running a dog-fighting ring?
Expanding on his December 29, 2008 <i>Sports Illustrated</i> article, Gorant offers a chilling investigation into Vick's dog-fighting operation and the men and women who brought him to justice and rescued his 51 dogs. All but a few of Vick's dogs have been rehabilitated as family pets and even therapy dogs, which Gorant details. Riveting, heartbreaking, and finally hopeful, Gorant's exemplary reporting is essential reading for anyone who cares about animal welfare or what it means to be responsibly human. — Jennifer L., Ridgedale Library
