Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is expected to appear before Congress today to support a bill that would make it a crime to attend a dogfighting or cockfighting event, according to reports.
The Wall Street Journal and the Morning Call of Allentown, reported that Vick, who was convicted of dogfighting charges in 2007, will join Wayne Pacelle, head of the Humane Society of the United States, to endorse the bill.
According to the Morning Call, the bill, titled H.R. 2492, was introduced by U.S. Reps. Tom Marino and Betty Sutton. It is designed to penalize those who finance or attend dogfights and cockfights and imposes additional penalties on those who bring children to such events.
