Hmmm, makes me wonder what the local sheriff was doing.
From the article:
The house that Michael Vick is alleged to have used to train pit bulls for dog fights is on a long rural road that is described by locals as the essence of country living.
Or, perhaps we should say, used to be described that way.
Everything changed, they say, when Vick purchased the property at 1915 Moonlight Rd. in Smithfield, Va., in 2001. Soon there was so much noise from the dogs that, according to one woman who lives a mile down the block, "Everybody has been calling the sheriff. It's been reported for years. It wasn't that hidden. The house sits right there by the road. You go by there and you know something's going on."
Maybe the sheriff's dept., like Vick, had assumed these were just a bunch of animal lovers. Lets not forget the only reason this whole thing came to light was because of a drug raid.
