Dog of Michael Vick’s leading critic dies in hot car

Robin Starr has been an outspoken critic of NFL quarterback Michael Vick for leading a cruel dogfighting ring. Vick acted despicably, then served his time in prison.

But today Starr is dealing with a cruel twist of fate.

A 16-year-old family dog died in the back seat of her car last week after being left there for four hours on a hot day in Richmond, Va.

Let’s be clear: By all accounts so far, this was an accident that could have been avoided.

Starr, the CEO of the Richmond Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, says she didn’t realize the deaf and blind dog — named Louie — was in the car.

That’s because her husband, Ed, had put the car in the back seat but failed to tell his wife. The dog died of kidney failure.
