Michael Vick attacked
Michael Vick, the 33 year old New York Jets player notorious for his dog-fighting conviction several years ago, is recovering after he was attacked by a Pomeranian inside a pet store in his home town of Newport News, Virginia. Now, investigators want to talk with the dog’s owner, whom they say left the store immediately after the dog bit the football player.

Vick has nine stitches in his nose. He said he has been losing sleep since the incident at the pet store on Saturday. The Vick family was at the store shopping when they ran into a man with a tiny Pomeranian in one of the aisles.

Mr. Vick says he petted the dog on the head and she was wagging her tail. Vick explains, the pup’s owner told him the dog’s name was ‘Kalba’ and then recognized the infamous ball player and became agitated.

He says he didn’t think he needed to be afraid until he reached his hand out, and the dog snapped at him. A witness told Dogington Post the dog then jumped up and bit Vick in the nose. After the bite, the tiny Pom then proceeded to squat and pee onto Vick’s sneaker, soaking through to his sock.

With Vick in the store bleeding and frantically trying to find help, police say the man brought the dog out into the parking lot, got in a car and tried to get away. They report a witness wanted to stop the man, but was laughing too hard to do anything. The witness did manage to snap a quick photo of the vicious dog with his smart phone.

Newport News police say the man drove a red, four-door Chevrolet sedan, and detectives have created a hotline for witnesses to come forward with any information. “So far,” said one detective on the case, “we’ve been flooded with calls from people who want to congratulate Kalba. We haven’t got any serious leads.”

Parking lot and in-store surveillance footage mysteriously went missing after the incident. Though the store was crowded, no one claims to have any information that would help identify Kalba’s owner.

Vick says he’s more interested in finding the Pomeranian to make sure it has all of its vaccinations. He says she dreads the thought of having to get rabies shots after all he’s been through, and he’d like to avoid it if possible.

I wanted this to be true so bad, but when it got to the part about the surveillance film missing . . . I knew it was a joke. Funny!!

RE: Michael Vick attacked
9 stitches in his nose was a give away for me. Way too many for a little dog and a small body part. I was bitten on my nose by a border collie sized dog and got 3 stitches.

But were it true the dog's name should be changed to Karma.

If it was true it would definitely be poetic justice and the little dog's name should be Karma! It is a great story even if it is a hoax. Personally I wouldn't mind to see a rabid raccoon, or 10, get a hold of him.

I really don't see Vick petting a Pom in the first place, but it was a nice little story. Would have been better if it was a PB though.

Too bad it isn't true, replace the pom with a fighting Pit and let the Pit have at him. That I would pay to watch.

Yep, one of the poor, tortured dogs he fought reincarnated and ripping his face off would have been great!

And if the body part bitten was further south.

RE: Michael Vick attacked
I'm so disappointed. I was laughing at the justice of it. My first question was though, what is he doing in a petstore. He should have been banned for life. Oh well we can only wish.
