Lee County, Mississippi Sheriff Jim Johnson continues to allow three cockfight pits to remain active in his jurisdiction. The pits have operated with impunity for years. SHARK has actively worked, since the beginning of 2023 to get Sheriff Johnson to do his job, and shut down the pits. Our efforts have unfortunately failed.
This Sunday, May 21, 2023, Sheriff Jim Johnson will be faced with a choice. He can choose to end his corrupt protection of cruel, criminal cockfighting in his jurisdiction, or he can choose to have his corruption witnessed in real time via streaming to the entire world.
