Hulk Hogan Gets Tough for Animals
I personally wouldn't want to get on Hulk Hogan's bad side, but a boxer named Roy Jones Jr. has. He bought a cock-fighting arena and brought down the wrath of the wrestler, who thinks that this is a barbaric (which it is), sport (which it isn't).

Pet lady: That's my role in the Miami Herald newsroom. I've been here since 1989, during which time I've had eight dogs, a ring-necked parakeet, a chicken, and a lizard named Lance. At the moment, I've got four dogs, two step-dogs, and two cockatiels. A native New Yorker, I came here from Louisville, Ky. I'm a graduate of the University of Arizona, and had a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard in 1988. I have written 233 stories containing the word 'dog' in the past 17 years.
