In a bit of news you may never read again in your life, Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson is reportedly due in court next month for an attack by his dogs. The attack was not on a human, or another dog, but on livestock. According to NFL.com and the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Benson’s dogs attacked and bit seventeen of his neighbors calves.
According to a family member of Benson’s neighbors, the animals suffered “very deep wounds and possibly tendon damage.” The police report included an evaluation from the veterinarian who examined the calves on Dec. 20. He “feels some may not make it through their injuries.”
A local ordinance prohibits animals from running at large. Benson was charged with a second violation of the ordinance on Jan. 13 when neighbors complained of the dogs running through the neighborhood. Deputies reported Benson admitted to “having a hard time keeping them contained.”
While I am sure the neighbors do not find this funny, I find it hilarious.
If the calves are still alive, I am not sure how they will win the case, but then again nothing will cease to amaze me anymore when it comes to the American legal system.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers running back Cedric Benson has his fair share of recent off-the-field incidents piling up around Wisconsin.
According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Benson's Rottweilers have caused most of the issues. A police report cited by the paper states that the dogs attacked and bit 17 calves at a farm near Benson's home in Manitowoc County on Dec. 20....
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers knows he won't be appearing on Super Bowl lead-in coverage this season as he did a year ago. After all, this year's Super Bowl is on CBS, the network responsible for the "60 Minutes" piece that Rodgers took offense to earlier this season.
"I can say I won't be working for CBS," Rodgers said on his ESPN Wisconsin radio...
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told Jason Wilde on his weekly show on WAUK-AM (540) that Charles Woodson is one of the core players of the team and needs to be brought back for next season.
“I know he is under contract and that he is an important part of our football team,” Rodgers said about Woodson. “I think he adds a lot. He is still playing at a really high...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Just because Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and CBS aren't on good terms apparently doesn't mean the network airing the Super Bowl this year isn't willing to work with other Green Bay players.
CBS announced Thursday afternoon that it has added Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews as a contributing analyst for its Super Bowl pregame coverage.
There’s Sr., and Jr., Clay III, Casey, Bruce, Kevin and soon Jake will join them. Who am I talking about? These seven people make up what could, and should, be considered America’s football family. Six of the above have or are playing in the National Football League and the last name on the list will be a top pick by a team in the 2014 NFL Draft. The Matthews family is equaled...
A summer illness kept Green Bay’s fifth-round pick from contributing on defense
The Green Bay Packers began the season with 10 rookies on the 53-man roster. That’s a pretty high number – especially for a team than won 15 games the previous year. But GM Ted Thompson didn’t hang on to all those rookies to save money or to make himself look good. He kept them because they could...
James Starks couldn't stay on the field and Alex Green failed to impress when given the chance.
DuJuan Harris was a godsend, but he lacks the size to be a lead back while Ryan Grant's better days were in 2007.
So when the Green Bay Packers begin their 2013 campaign, don't be surprised to see the running back position come full circle - with the needle once again...
Maybe Bryan Bulaga will finally be in position to fill the position he was drafted to play, the first-round draft pick from 2010 could be on the move to left tackle, according to Rob Reischel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, after excelling on the right side. Marshall Newhouse struggled at left tackle this past season and former first-round pick Derek Sherrod has struggled to remain...
Packers center Jeff Saturday said on Thursday he will wait until after Sunday's Pro Bowl to determine if he will retire this offseason.
"As soon as this game is over, we'll make that final call," Saturday said after Thursday's NFC practice.
Asked if he has already made the decision, Saturday said he had not. "I'll sit down with my wife and family...
