A number of supporters of Baylor's animal abuse are sending SHARK hate E-mail. Not all supporters of the mascot program behave in this manner. Unfortunately, to our knowledge no Baylor students involved in obscene and threatening behavior have been disciplined by Baylor administrators.

I think you are (expletive deleted) out of your mind. To say that these bears are abused because they walk in circles and occasionally have to walk in their (expletive deleted) is so (expletive deleted) stupid.
Let me ask you something. When a bear (expletive deleted) in the woods does it just disappear? (expletive deleted) no, the bear walks through it. Also you website says that the bears are kept apart at all times. Get you (expletive deleted) facts straight you (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted). The bears were only confined until November, because Joy was too big to be around Lady, and would play with her to roughly. They are together daily no you stupid (expletive deleted). I know that you and your (expletive deleted)friends like to (expletive deleted) to your videos of the bears, but driving around campus with that (expletive deleted) is (expletive deleted) stupid. We do not get off to this (expletive deleted) like you sick (expletive deleted). So instead of spending your (expletive deleted) money on a(expletive deleted) van with (expletive deleted) screen, spend in on condoms so you stop the spread of AIDS amongs homosexuals. Wait dont use condoms, please kill yourselves off. I know why you are really doing this, you are the (expletive deleted) president of Baylor Freedom, and you are pissed cause your (expletive deleted) club isn't allowed on campus. Well too (expletive deleted) bad, go (expletive deleted) yourself, and eat each others (expletive deleted). Your claims are so full of (expletive deleted). Why dont you get your (expletive deleted) facts straight and spend your(expletive deleted) money on AIDS research cause faggots like you are going to need that cure. Also i was on those tours this summer and they did say that they used to feed the bears that (expletive deleted), but they didnt brag that they still do, they said they stopped because they found out that it did affect the bears teeth. Let me ask you a question, when your buddy(expletive deleted) you in the (expletive deleted), and then you (expletive deleted), thus you eat your own (expletive deleted), that is worse then feeding a bear oreos by far. I know that you want to free the bears so that you and your buddies can go give it to them hard, but serious spooging in their mouth is not possible because they will bite your (expletive deleted)off, and if it was possible, your (expletive deleted) is worse for those bears than (expletive deleted) Dr Pepper.

Dear Queer Shark,
I am a student at Baylor University and you can suck my (expletive deleted). Your convincing video footage does not work...meaning; You ain't got (expletive deleted). If by abusing the bear you mean showing it a jolly good time, I agree with you. The (expletive deleted) bear lives the life of Yogi the bear....without the theft. You think the bear has a problem with walking around in circles, then mabye you should get your head out of your gay lovers ass and realize that the bear lives a better life than any of your adopted children ever will, you anal spelunker. Your so-called "expert" opinions are nothing but bear (expletive deleted), and I am sure you forced the people into saying these things with death threats and/or rape. What exactly is your goal you (expletive deleted) retard? Do you want to get our bears moved to a zoo where he can walk around in circles in another place instead of our luxorious facilities, or do you want it to perhaps be released into the wild where it can be (expletive deleted) daily by larger and blacker bears who have not been sheltered all their life. I am sure there are actual instances of abuse like all that beastiality (expletive deleted) that you guys are probably behind. Why dont you eat our(expletive deleted) you (expletive deleted) then you can (expletive deleted)out our (expletive deleted) and it becomes your (expletive deleted) then you can eat our (expletive deleted) combination again you (expletive deleted). Why dont you put your (expletive deleted) in each others asses and(expletive deleted) each other until you bleed. Just like you want to do to the bear thus the reason why you want to free him. If I ever have the chance, I will pull you out of the van of gay, make you eat curb, and(expletive deleted) you. Then I will hope with all my being that you do not die and become a vegatable for the rest of your life. On your way home today I hope you get in a car wreck with your future wife and your kids never have a chance to live. Stop wasting your (expletive deleted) time. Dildos.

i saw your truck last night by the texaco on campus across from penland, that guy in the driver's seat must be quite an important character to have the privilege to lock himself in the cab of the van. does he worry about all the students who will knock over his van the next time it is spotted on campus? there will be so many of them that no matter how many police agencies you call you wont catch them. you stupid idiots need to get a clue and realize that we are better than you and you are just jealous. our mascots should be featured on the MTV show cribs as the most luxurios and protected animals on earth. did you know we use concussion grenades on the birds who roost in our trees because their white, runny, diseased infested (expletive deleted)was ruining car finishes, pavement, health, and just being plain annoying. do you bitch for every animal or just the ones you like. our bears would rip you to shreds if they understood your efforts. if anything those bears get more attention than y'all probably did as children. did your mom not hug you enough, did you get beat up in school and you have to hide behind a looped movie to release your caged aggressions, do you always butt into other peoples business. get a life. those bears just get spoiled and wish they could be played with 24/7, but that isn't possible because we have better things to do unlike you. the bears get more freedom than any bear at any zoo in any location, they get affection from every student at this campus, every alumni, and every other person involved with this school directly or indirectly. they get rubbed, fed, bathed, petted,loved, worshipped, praised, and maybe that is too much, they probably just get upset when the chamber has to end the regular sessions. the schedule for the bears care is so more than adequate, a human could live there just as happily as the bears do. focus on saving a rain forrest, or the earth that your diesel fumes from your van is killing, bother another university mascot but not ours, you need to get the facts before you go spreading you derranged lies to the rest of us civilized life loving people, you make me feel dumber after watching your lame videos, sell the van, and buy the bears, see ifyou can take better care of them, you couldn't raise a rock to be a stone,let alone understand what kind of effort it takes just to keep a fragile animal like a bear happy.

I feel that it would be very good for my business. I have some really hot scenes with the Baylor Mascots and that girl from "girls of the Big 12." You guys really need to get over this. You drive around campus, and no one even pays attention. Face it, noone gives a damn about the Baylor Bears. I mean come on, it would be one thing if we were abusing an important animals like dolphins or something, but these are just bears. They don't know any better. I have seen these animals (expletive deleted) in their own pool, they can't be that smart. They probably don't even know they are being abused. You wan't to start some kind of animal movement. How about a movement against all of the damn squirrels on Baylor's campus. I wish we could let out Joy and Lady to round up all of these pests and eat them. Anyway hope this revenge of the nerds thing works out for you, sorry your dog drank antifreeze when you were a kid.

Although my name seems to imply that I would assassinate a bear, I most likely would not do something like this. I do however think that hunting wild animals is fun and would like an opportunity to kill a wild bear. I would have it stuffed and put it in my house. I am not telling you this to enrage you, but I would however, as a byproduct, find it utterly hilarious if you were enraged by this e-mail. You all have spent so much time and money into voicing your opinion, so I know that this may offend you, but surely you realize how foolish it is to make any type of investment of time and money into something like this after the events of 9/11 and other terrorist activity going on. PEOPLE are getting killed. If you think some wild animal's life is worth more than a human life than you have a nut or two missing in your mind and probably should be put out of your own misery like any bear that is a threat to a human life. You all don't have the balls enough to fight for your country so you find something ridiculous to fight for like the life of a bear who's only mental function involves eating you. So if you want to waste your time on an animal that only wants to eat you instead of spending time doing something that is actually worth while, go for it...i'll see you in the poo of whatever wild animal eats you while your trying to start a close bonding relationship with it in the wild to help you reach nirvana with your hippie friends.

Oh dear Lord, this has to be by far the single stupidest thing I have ever seen in my entire life. You have the nerve to accuse us, a first class University of abusing our own pride and joy. How dare you do such a thing. You should be ashamed to call yourself an animal rights group. Where do you get off telling us that we abuse the bears. I agree with past "Hate Mail" people when I say that the mascot has a better life than most of the students. Katie makes a good point in saying that the bears are loved, and they are. It is regarded as an honor at Baylor just to have your picture taken with the mascot. I also agree with Joe, your videos are full of crap. They are intentionally looped to make it look like the bear is pacing, and they whimpering noise it is making, give me a break. That is yet another result of your poor video looping skills. Next time you decide to accuse someone of a false act be sure to have some real evidence and not a bunch of crap that will get you laughed at by everyone around you. SHARK has to be tho most unprofessional bunch of dumb asses I have ever come across. Speaking of which what was with this "Tiger" you brought to campus. What were you thinking? Were you thinking that we would be stupid enough to believe the looped (expletive deleted) you were playing on the screens? Take your (expletive deleted) box and go back to Illinois where you came from. We are too good and too busy to deal with Liberal mindlessness.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha. You guts made complete idiots of yourselves this week when you brought that ridiculous van to our campus and showed off your poor quality videos of our mascot. Hello, the mascot is in the bear pit, if we want to see the bear we can just go to the bear pit, we don't need a bunch of PETA wannabes comming to our campus all the way from Illinois and showing us videos of the bear. I overestimated you all, I thought you were stupid, you guys are total freaking retards. How much did that van cost by the way, tell me, how much, then tell me what that money could have gone for. This is great, you're an animal rights group that is stupid enough to move on the word of a 16-year-old from Utah who knows nothing about Texas, and secondly you have no clue how to properly allocate your money. I wish knew how stupid you guys look in the eyes of this great university. You have no clue what fools you have made of yourselves. You say our administration doesn't have the guts?!?!?! Of course they do, if they don't have any interest in debating this issue with you idiots it's because they have better things to do than watch people like you fight lost causes. I know this will be hard for you to accept but you have lost the battle and the war, you're just in denial about it. But hey if you want to fight your hopless cause then go right ahead, atleast it keeps the kids entertained. Oh I crack myself up. Anyway, I just love how you idiots keep dragging this on and on, every passing second makes you look that much dummer. If SHARK is Baylor's biggest opposition then we have nothing to worry about. And the hate mail crap on your webpage is so funny. "Oh look mommy, we're getting made fun of and people are saying not so nice things at us, boo hoo hoo. What do you expect, when an organization, like yours, flaunts a really stupid idea, like your allegations about our mascot, it is going to be bombarded from all corners by those who know better. Your worthless allegations have caused you to make 14,000 enemies who would love nothing more than to see SHARK be run into the ground. And what's with you calling me boy, last time I checked I was young man with the ability to make educated decidions and not run off and make snap judgements like you guys do. And since I have better things to do than remind you of the fact that your cause is hopless I am going to leave you with this sentiment. You have become Baylor's most hated enemy, consider it a courtesy warning when I say that it would be a good idea not to mess with us anymore, you WILL regret it. Oh and good luck trying to find your balls, that is if you have any to find.

I think I should send the save the wieners patrol to your house while you abuse it at night while whacking off. I think this is a form of abuse that should be looked after very closely for the people in your position. You dumb nerds have to much free time to sit around and play with yourselves. You need to grow up and quit worrying about what other people are doing with their money. The Bears at Baylor are some of the most well taken care of bears anywhere in the world.

this is regarding your vehicle being on Baylor's campus the night of the 24th of sept. I am pissed off as a Baylor student that you are trying to convince people that our mascot is abused by our school and students. as a college student, I believe that the current bear lives better than I do. the bear gets exactly the same treatment and possibly even better than some zoos around the country. your footage online (http://www.sharkonline.org/baylorbearabuse.mv) is ridiculous. it shows nothing more than a bear awake at night with nothing to do. I do this in my own home when I cant sleep. and the fact that you think one girls conversation with a group of tourists is enough evidence that our bears drink dr. pepper on a regular basis and you believe the bear is suffering from it in some way is outlandish and irrational. I am not claiming to be an expert on the way a bear should live, but I have no idea what your purpose is here. go home! were you that deprived as children that you need to slander universities and companies worldwide to get attention so you feel that you are important. I think that you guys just need a damn hug. you guys suck! hopefully you can remove the stick from your asses and find a real job. did you guys go to college? you know what, i am not worried, your truck will be gone in a day or two and you will find that this was a lost cause!

Do you think that God gave use the brain he did to act like a bunch of idiots. The human race is the superior mammal on this earth and we have the ability to survive off of the land. Many generations before us have survived by killing and eating animals. Animals can also be a source of entertainment. This is the way it is. I dare you to come to my house and have an argument about the ethical treatment of animals. You can also bring some of those PETA fags with you as well. I would be glad to show you my trophy room of Animal HEADS. They look very nice on my wall. You liberal idiots have nothing better to do than to worry about some stupid animal. Find a better cause to devote your money and time. Like homelessness, AIDS, the New York tragedy. Your agenda is screwed up and the money that people pay you should be used for a better cause. I can not believe you are wasting such time and money on two little bears. There are plenty of bears in the wilderness that get to live free. Leave our Bears alone.

I have little respect for you people. Clearly, the Baylor Bears could use a better habitat. But you guys diagnosing the mental health of these bears as nuerotic is about like asking Al Gore to diagnos the problems of the current president. You have a bias that leaves you with no credibility in the eyes of normal Americans. You choose to view the care of these bears through a clouded, self-righteous lens. Your spin on the state of these bears is ignorant, uneducated, assinine...for example:
“If Baylor has an ounce of compassion, I have yet to see it.” This statement does not take into account the thousands of students and graduates enlisted by various university programs to build homes for poor families, to run/operate after school programs, to teach kids with underdeveloped speech habits how to speak...nor does it take into account the hundreds of doctors, whose work saves the lives of many sick people (and, yes, animals).
I am certain this will fall on your deaf ears--as you have already made a decision that you are right and everyone else is wrong. Hope that kind of mentality worked in your marriage, Mr. Hindi. Please don't be too critical of my bitching--as that is clearly your only area of expertise. (and not mine)

I would just like to let you guys know that the rest of the world is behind your incredibly insightful views, no, wait, nevermind. You PETA wannabes need to keep your fingers out of everyone else’s business. You can tell that little 16 year old mama’s boy to stay home at Utah and worry about his debating classes. That bear has life better than I could ever dream of, and I suggest you actually look at facts before you annoy us anymore. Baylor works with zoo professionals and the state to make sure the Bear Pit is up to code, after just a couple years, the bears go to a reserve to spend the rest of their lives, and if you honestly believe the stories that the bear is given Dr. Pepper, I suggest you try something that those of us who were smart enough to make it into college know as “logic.” You hippies just play with your hippy friends up there and leave us and our bear alone.
That said, if you think you can just relax and realize that we're going to keep our bear, and you can accept that, you're welcome to come back to Texas anytime.

I am an Baylor University alumni and truly despise the mistreatment of animals. After seeing some of the pictures I truly believe the bears deserve better treatment. After watching the videos, you have lost credibility with me. It is quite obvious that you looped some of the videos to make your case. If you really have the bears best interest at heart, please use only factual information. Most Baylor students and alumni believe that the bears should be treated with the greatest care. If Baylor fails to provide the bears with a suitable environment they should not have them. But as an organization trying to better the bear's situation, you should be held to the same level of honesty you expect from Baylor. If you correct the videos to display a more truthful depiction of the bears living conditions you might receive more support to correct a bad situation.

Are you looking into University of Texas.....?
They have a live longhorn which they bring to games and drug up just so that it can sit there and look good.
What about Florida.... they keep aligators.
What about people with animals? Are you going to try to pass laws regarding these issues?
-People who own a pet and then place those animals in small cages with no shade.
-People who refuse to place a fence around their property and/or keep their dog on a leash. Thus leading to a terrible and cruel death under a car.
-Bill Clinton- Nobody even raised question about how Buddy got killed. Remember the fun loving dog that Bill Clinton owned. It was killed by a car and yet it's okay. Did anybody say the Bill Clinton was cruel. Did anyone feel sorry for Buddy. No!
-People who dump their animals out in the country and leave them to starve to death. These people continue to live their lives without any remorse.
-People whose cats or dogs get pregnant and then give birth to a litter. Since these people don't want the animals they take them to the shelter. Then after a given amount of time, these animals are killed.
-People who take their animals out to walk in the heat. These people bring themselves water but none for the animal. Then they wonder whhy their animal is dragging behind them.
-Poeple who leave their animals in their car while they go into a store andd shop for hours.
-People who allow their animals to ride in the back of pickups without any safety devices.
-Ranchers who have cattle and yet provide no shade or any place to cool off. These are the same ones that do not feed their animals enough and thus when you go by the cattle move towards you looking for food.

I have been to Baylor and seen those bears. I know several of the people who care for them. You have no idea what you're talking about, and most of the information on your page is simply not true. Why don't you have clips of the bears playing with their toys? How do you know those are feces at the bottom of the pool, did you go down and examine it? Why don't you mention the fact that the entire facility is cleaned at least 3 times a week?
You people are in fact fanatics. Contrary to your absurd definition, a fanatic is someone who is totally irrational about an issue, and your nonsense about Baylor places you firmly in that category. If the administration of Baylor weren't so kind, they would have grounds to sue you for libel.
