Take a bite out of Vick, with a Dog Chew Toy

Company selling plastic depiction of QB, who is charged with dogfighting

For those looking to vent their anger toward Atlanta Falcons quarterback
Michael Vick and his alleged involvement in a years-long dogfighting
operation, a Florida company has created an opportunity: the Michael Vick
Dog Chew Toy.

However, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday that Red Room Entertainment of
Jacksonville, Fla., might have problems concerning the toy's legality and
the company's intentions for making it.

The company, which is selling the toy on its web site, said it will donate
some of the proceeds to the Humane Society.

The Tribune said Red Room might be running afoul of NFL trademark rights,
because Vick is depicted in his Falcons uniform.

The Tribune cited one seller on eBay who has posted more than a dozen with
the notation "Get it now before the NFL shuts production down!" (Click here

The Tribune also said that a Jacksonville Humane Society spokesperson told
local media that the agency had not heard of Red Room's plans to donate
money from sales of the toy.

"If purchasers of this toy believe they are donating to a Jacksonville
Humane Society program advocating against dogfighting, that is clearly not
the case and would be misleading," Chere Garrard told The Jacksonville
Times-Union.

The company, selling the toy for $10.99, promises that the toy is "so strong
and flexible, it will challenge every breed -- especially the pit bull."

With his endorsement opportunities on the decline, Vick is considering
selling his remaining kennel inventories to Korean and Hmong
restaurants.
