Cockfighting is an illegal blood sport where roosters are trained to fight and kill each other. They often have sharp blades attached to their legs so they can tear each other apart.
Cockfighting is illegal in all 50 states, yet these bloody, barbaric events are ongoing across our country. SHARK has already taken the initiative against cockfighting by using our drones to film suspect rooster farms in Illinois and California. We are now announcing a new nationwide campaign called Crush Cockfighting, that will expose these illegal animal fights like never before, and we'll work hard to have those involved held accountable under the law.
To help stop cruel, criminal cockfighting, Monterey County, California has an ordinance limiting a property owner to 5 roosters. A property much obtain a permit for more than five roosters.
There are currently more than 1000 illegal rooster operations in Monterey County, and no legal permits for more than five roosters. That indicates rampant corruption in Monterey County, including law enforcement, and a supposed humane organization.
