SHARK is very pleased to announce that, after a relentless 3-year, non-violent campaign waged against Jim Inhofe, US Senator from Oklahoma, he will no longer hold cruel live pigeon shoots as political fundraisers! This is an extraordinary victory, as we took on a powerful and corrupt politician in his home state, one that others were afraid to go after, and we defeated him in just three years.
In 2015 Oklahoma State Senator Ralph Shortey introduced legislation to allow the legal shooting of drones over private property in Oklahoma. Mr. Shortey specifically noted a 2015 incident when a drone owned by Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) was shot down while filming a cruel and illegal live pigeon shoot political fundraiser held by Oklahoma US Senator Jim Inhofe. Read the actual proposed law HERE.
