Former Green Bay Packer LeRoy Butler can no longer listen to sports radio in his car after his daughter, Danielle, heard about the dog fighting saga that Michael Vick is involved in.
My 7-year-old [Danielle] loves animals. We were out shopping for adog. We were in the car, and I can’t listen to sports radio anymorebecause she heard how they drowned and electrocuted some animals. Ilooked back there at a red light and she had tears in her eyes. Shesaid, ‘I don’t understand why somebody would drown a dog.’ Now I had toexplain it as a parent. I said that sometimes people do stuff that isso terrible that you’ve got to offset that guy by doing something good.She just kept wiping her tears. She was really bothered by it.
LeRoy has three other daughters, Sharon, 21, Loreal, 13, and Gabrielle, 12.
