Kansas Veterinarian Caught Lying About Injured Rodeo Steer

SHARK investigators filmed the mishandling of an injured steer at the 2019 PRCA National Steer Roping Finals. The steer was dropped from a pallet due to carelessness, and fell headfirst to the pavement. The steer was then left, untreated, in a dark trailer, as was another injured steer. Dr. Brian Hode, was the official onsite veterinarian. A SHARK investigator called Dr. Hodes about the incident. Dr. Hodes, who was unaware that there was video documentation, repeated denied the incident. His statements were recorded, and are part of this video.

Injured Rodeo Steer Dropped, then Abandoned by PRCA

At the PRCA National Finals Steer Busting finals in November 2019 a steer was injured during this brutal steer busting competition. He was taken out the back of the building, to be dumped in a trailer, without care. Although four people were moving him, the thugs were so incompetent, the steer was dropped as he was lifted by forklift. The already suffering animal was dumped headfirst onto the pavement.

New Documentary About SHARK + Cockfighting Action Alert!

September 24, 2019

DEAR FRIENDS,

SHARK has been the leader in using drones to expose animal cruelty. Our drones have captured everything from pigeon shoots to imprisoned beagles at breeding labs, to cockfighting properties and so much more. Our use of drones got the attention of AirVūz, a drone enthusiast website. We are very excited to announce that AirVūz has released a documentary about SHARK and our use of drones! Please watch and share this video.
 

Watch the video HERE

From the video:  As a drone pilot, Steve Hindi may have had more aircrafts shot down than anyone in the world. He's the President of SHARK, (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness) and the primary Pilot in Command of their UAV fleet, dubbed "Angel Drones”. SHARK’s fleet of drones fly above gun-toting animal abusers in order to surveil and document cruelty - and it's a very dangerous job. This is the story of SHARK — pioneers in using UAV technology for animal protection. See their special ops in action with AirVūz's first ever feature-length documentary as Director/Producer Colin McDougall tags along on one of their drone missions to learn about the organization’s history and work in the war against animal cruelty.

Once again we must state that SHARK is desperately low on funds. While others spend their money on marketing, we are doing the hard work fighting for animals. Please share our updates and videos and let people know that if they want to support real work for animals that saves lives, that SHARK is the place for them!

 

We have just released a new video on the outrageous situation in Kentucky, where a local prosecutor told the State Police that cockfighting was not illegal! This was his response to our releasing evidence that involved a Kentucky father and son cockfighting team, where the father is a Captain at the Harlan County Jail and the son is a former corrections officer at that same jail.
 
Watch the video HERE
 
 

One of the posts SHARK collected from Kyle Simpson, who, along with his father Ronnie Bennett, owned a rooster farm called the Cuttin' Up Game Farm

To be clear, cockfighting is absolutely illegal in KY and in our new video we provide all the evidence. We strongly suspect that there is deep corruption at play here. Please contact there following people and politely ask that they enforce KY state law and investigate and prosecute the father and son cockfighting team.

SHARK's Drone Films Injured and Starving Animals on Indiana Property

 

 
 
September 25, 2019

DEAR FRIENDS,

On Monday, September 23rd, SHARK was in Indiana filming a literal dump where a number of sickly and injured animals are being kept.  

Watch the video HERE

 

An overview of the property we filmed, followed by a close-up of a dog who appears to be severely malnourished 

SHARK received a tip about this property, and though we have been grounded due to lack of funds, we knew we had to get to Indiana and do what we could for the sickly and seemingly starving animals on that property.

  A local resident sent us the tip about this nightmarish place. He also sent us this picture of an injured horse. Once we saw what was going on, we knew we had to take action


We will have more on this issue soon and what you can do to help these animals. In the meantime, please understand that SHARK is in dire need of funds so we can continue to do the desperately needed work of exposing animal cruelty such as this.

When SHARK got the call for these animals, we answered. That’s what makes SHARK different, and it’s why we need your help. Please consider making a generous donation to SHARK today

 

SHARK'S Campaign Against Cockfighters Expands Across Our Country!

Support SHARK's Hard Work Fighting for Animals - Please Click Here to Make a Donation

 

September 16, 2019

DEAR FRIENDS,

SHARK was serious when we said our new campaign to "Crush Cockfighting" was going to be the biggest such campaign ever undertaken. We have already collected evidence against cockfighters in 22 states!  

To show you just how vast a reach this is, take a look at this graphic we created:

This is just the beginning: Once we finish supplying law enforcement in all the above states with the evidence we currently have, we will continue our research and digging up evidence until there isn't a state on that chart that isn't burning red from our efforts!

This is an example of the type of evidence we've been collecting: Names, faces, and pictures of these guys posing with cockfighting trophies and talking about actual cockfights


Once again we must state that SHARK is desperately low on funds. While others spend their money on marketing, we are doing the hard work fighting for animals. Please share our updates and videos and let people know that if they want to support real work for animals that saves live, that SHARK is the place for them!

 

 


 

 

 


Monterey County's Spineless SPCA, Corrupt District Attorney

 

In July, 2019, SHARK investigators recorded horrific animal cruelty when dogs were forced to attack bulls at the California Rodeo Salinas in Monterey County California. This was illegal - yet Monterey County District Attorney is refusing to prosecute.

In this video, we show how that same DA has been a stalwart volunteer of the rodeo that she has refused to hold accountable under the law. The SPCA of Monterey County is refusing to stand up to this compromised DA, and has long partnered with the rodeo to blunt efforts to stop abuse.

You can read more about this disturbing miscarriage of justice HERE

Please politely contact both the DA and the SPCA and call on them to take action:

SHARK Challenges Lies from Salinas Rodeo

Are there no lies the Salinas Rodeo will not tell when it comes to animal abuse? Salinas Rodeo Marketing Manager Mandy Linquist was challenged to respond. As of September 16, 2019, she has not responded. We don't expect that she ever will.
