    Vick, Humane Society say Google app glorifies dogfighting

    Unfortunately, there’s an app for that.

    Michael Vick and the Humane Society say an application built to run on Google’s Android software glorifies dogfighting, the AP reports.

    The app is called “Dog Wars” and lets players feed, water, train and fight their virtual dogs against others.

    Vick and Human Society President Wayne Pacelle say the game could be used as a virtual training ground for would-be dogfighters. They call for Google to drop the app.

    The game is by Kage Games, whose website features an illustration of a pit bull with a bloody muzzle.

    Google Inc. did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
