Tamira Thayne Who Took Ownership of Michael Vick’s Dogs Wanted for Animal Cruelty
The Irony is thick like school teachers working at Magic City.
Wonder if Ms. Thayne will get two years in jail?
The owner and founder of a group that bought Michael Vick’s former Surry County home in an effort to care for rescued dogs is being sought on animal cruelty charges.
According to Tracy Terry, Chief Animal Control officer for Surry County, Tamira Thayne is wanted for animal cruelty and inadequate care of animals. Animal Control has received numerous complaints about the property, but could not go into detail about the complaints.
Terry told WAVY.com Thayne has been operating an illegal shelter as long as she has been in the state of Virginia.
When Animal Control began to receive the complaints, Terry said officers and officials from Virginia’s Office of Veterinary Services visited the home and property.
While Michael Vick deserved to be punished for his dog fighting ring, two years in jail was too harsh of a penalty and I will venture a guess that Ms. Thayne charges will only amount to a slap on the wrist.
That is the difference when you are a starting QB in the NFL and just a random home owner.
Other athletes should take note.
