(Newser) – PETA may protest if Michael Vick gets another job in the NFL without first undergoing a psychological evaluation, the animal-rights group’s DC office says. A spokesperson tells CBS affiliate WUSA-TV that a person who’s served time has the right to go free, but isn’t entitled to go straight back to making millions. Vick’s treatment of dogs was psychopathic, PETA claims.
