Cape Woman Lets Dogs Chew Up Vick Cards, Sells to Benefit Humane Society

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A Cape Girardeau woman who collects sports trading cards says she's disgusted by the Michael Vick dogfighting case.

So Rochelle Steffen says she let her two dogs chew up her 22 Vick cards and is now selling the cards' remains on eBay.  The winning bid money will be donated to the Humane Society of the bidder's choice.

Late this morning the current high bid for the cards stood at $400, up from $176 at 6 p.m. yesterday.  The bidding deadline is Sunday.

After reading Vick's 18-count indictment, Steffen gave the cards to her 6-year-old Weimaraner "Monte" and her Great Dane puppy "Roxie" to chew.

She said she would have destroyed the cards anyway, but that letting her dogs chew them was more appropriate.
