SHARK has released a new video exposing exposing the Philadelphia Gun Club and its President, Edward Bruce DiDonato, for the animal cruelty they commit and for their history of harassment and intimidation against female protesters.

When you see the vile treatment women have received by members of the gun club, including Mr. DiDonato himself when he used his large SUV to intimidate peaceful protesters, we are certain you will be as disgusted as we are.

DiDonato has a relationship with Rider University, where there is a lecture hall named after him. We are therefore asking everyone to politely and respectfully contact Rider President Gregory G. Dell’Omo and ask him to remove DiDonato’s name from the lecture hall if DiDonato will not apologize and resign from the gun club.

A new book by Pauline Marie Gambill has been published that deals with SHARK President Steve Hindi's work fighting for animals. 

"The FOX FEATS and SHARK TALES of Pollution Fighter James F. Phillips and Animal Rights Warrior Steven O. Hindi is an extensive and absorbing look at the lives and achievements of two courageous and fearless individuals: James F. Phillips (1930-2001), known as “the Fox;” and Steven Hindi, founder of the animal rights organization SHARK (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness). The book delves into the early lives of Phillips and Hindi and looks at what drove them to a fierce and relentless dedication to their causes. Their journeys were not without serious and dangerous obstacles, and—in Hindi’s case—even resulted in physical injury. In addition to the telling of the men’s intriguing histories, visual images provide an important peek into their lives and work."
