National Public Radio's Morning Edition, Wednesday, August 8, 2007, aired a piece by commentator Frank Deford on dog fighting and on various forms of hunting, such as "canned hunting" where hunters shoot animals who are trapped behind fences on ranches. He notes that "in the animal-cruelty business" Michael Vick shares company with many others.
