Dogs owned by Bryce Brown were seized last month, returned to him Friday

Dogs owned by Eagles running back Bryce Brown were seized in May at a Wisconsin kennel.  According to the Eau Claire (Wisc.) Leader-Telegram, the seizure of the adult female Pit Bull and seven puppies occurring in connection with a broader dogfighting investigation.

On Friday, a judge ordered that the dog and its litter be returned to Brown.

Brown has not been accused of wrongdoing, and apparently won’t be.  He sent his dog to the kennel for breeding in February.

Brown’s lawyer argued that Brown is a victim, and that it was important that the young dogs be released to Brown sooner rather than later.

“It’s a lot easier to sell 8-week-old puppies than it is to sell eight-month-old puppies,” attorney Sheila Kessler said in court.
Again, there’s no evidence or allegation Brown did anything wrong.  It appears that he simply picked the wrong kennel.

    Did he get a recommendation from Vick on which kennel to trust?

    Is he selling them to Mike Vick? or for Mike Vick?

    He should’ve known that Kennel would be Bad Newz.

    JEEZ, players can’t even manage their responsibilities regarding pets, much less THEMSELVES! Maybe the pets should be taking their OWNERS to obedience school instead of the other way around until their masters become housebroken, so to speak! Perhaps coaches and trainers need to periodically whack the player’s noses with rolled-up newspapers until they learn to behave!

    Mannn…how clever you guys are to inject Vick into all this.

    Impressively unexpected.

    Mike Vick jokes commence…

    Brown needs to associate himself with better people. Perhaps he can have a little chat with his QB about the ramifications of dog fighting.

    Looks like someone just made PETA’s watch list.

    Hopefully, Bryce Brown isn’t a psychopathic moron too.

    Bryce “Bulldog” Brown.

    I hope he doesn’t hold any of the dogs. Probably would fumble them.

    Breeding pit bulls is stupid. Animal rescues across the country are already overflowing with them of every size, shape, age. Anybody who has paid any more than an adoption fee to own one has rocks in their head and got ripped off, willingly.

    Maybe Mike Vick can explain to Bryce Brown who “Bubba” is and how he’ll become Brown’s new best friend in prison 🙂

    Yeah because a pro football player needs to sell puppies, you know, make ends meet.

    Why do I feel like Hernandez is behind this somehow

  17. northstarnic says: Jun 29, 2013 4:25 PM

    So is he providing a puppy-laundering service for his QB?

  18. thorbjorn1975 says: Jun 29, 2013 4:34 PM

    He did nothing wrong yet everyone Is attacking him. Get a life people. There are thousands of people around the world that use kennels and breed their animals. It doesn’t make them all criminals.

    Not everybody who owns pittbulls are dirtbags. Just most of them.

  20. jpb12 says: Jun 29, 2013 5:25 PM

    You know Vick’s had a sudden case of diarrhea all day.

  21. j4man1 says: Jun 29, 2013 6:58 PM

    Well, as usual we are not getting the whole story – but chances are he is just as dirty as his qb.

  22. raynman49 says: Jun 29, 2013 10:39 PM

    If you have pit bulls, you’re protecting something.

    “If you lie down with dogs you will get up with fleas”. Keep associating with those types Bryce and you will get burned….
