In November 2019, the CBS show 60 Minutes did a shameful story promoting rodeos. To answer this, SHARK has released a video rebutting the fluff piece and telling the true story of what rodeos are really like.
Please watch our video and then contact CBS and politely ask that they give equal time on this issue. Tell them the truth is supposed to matter, and that they are not supposed to be a PR firm for cruel rodeos.
On January 23, SHARK received an email from a cockfighting supporter that said SHARK was now part of a civil rights lawsuit being filed in defense of cockfighting. And yes, it really was a dumb as that sounds.
We decided to have some fun with this guy, who we dubbed "Johnny Cockfighting," in a video challenging him to let us film a cockfight that he knows about. Unsurprisingly, he hasn't taken us up on that challenge.
