ATLANTA, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Informants say the NFL's Michael Vick -- formerly with Atlanta, now with Philadelphia -- drowned, shot and bludgeoned fighting dogs to death, documents show.

Summaries of interrogations of a member of the quarterback's dogfighting ring and with confidential informants conducted by federal investigators were released Friday to WSB-TV, Atlanta, through a Freedom of Information Act request. The broadcaster said they contained claims that Vick killed fighting dogs that didn't perform well by hitting them with shovels and that he got an "adrenaline high while killing the dogs."
