Prosecutors Seek $1 Million From Vick to Pay for Care of Pitbulls

Nothing wrong with that. It's not like he can't afford it.

The government, citing Vick's ``deteriorating financial condition,'' asked U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson to issue a restraining order freezing about $928,000 to be used for the care of 54 dogs and find homes for them, according to court papers filed today.

Vick, who turned himself in yesterday to begin his prison term, faces up to five years at his Dec. 10 sentencing for a federal dogfighting charge. Vick is financially responsible for the animals' care as part of the agreement with prosecutors he entered by pleading guilty to a charge of plotting to run an interstate dogfighting ring, the Associated Press said.
