SHARK and HFA Place Ads in Kentucky Exposing Illegal Cockfighting and Police Misconduct



July 1, 2021

DEAR FRIENDS,

Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) and the Humane Farming Association (HFA) are partnering with brave Kentuckians to expose illegal cockfighting operations in KY by purchasing ads in major newspapers in the state.
 
Titled, "COCKFIGHTING IS DESTROYING KENTUCKY COMMUNITIES”, these hard-hitting ads detail the horrors inextricably tied to illegal cockfighting, such as animal cruelty, drug dealing, illegal firearms, organized crime and rampant illegal gambling.
 

Read the ad and watch our videos exposing cockfighting on Crushcockfighting.com



The ad also points out the protection cockfighting pits have received from the KY State Police as well as local police, such as at the Laurel County Sheriff’s department, where an actual cockfighter, who has worked for the largest criminal fighting operation in the region, is on staff.  It also shows a picture of two Clay County Deputies who were filmed by SHARK undercover investigators at a cockfight last summer.

The ads will run starting today in the Louisville Courier Journal and Friday in the Frankfort State Journal.

Please also remember that SHARK will be in Kentucky on the weekend of the 4th, patrolling cockfighting pits.

This will be one of the most dangerous operations we have ever conducted. These criminals stand to lose millions of dollars and life means nothing to them. That combination creates a potentially deadly environment, something we've faced before.
 

Constant pursuit of animal abusers is an absolute must. This is a large part of why SHARK is more productive then other groups. We don't sit in offices - we are in the field. Unfortunately, this costs money for fuel, food, lodging, wear and tear on vehicles and equipment. Travel isn't fun when you're chasing animals abusers. It's not fun at all, but it is vital to make positive change.
 

SHARK's Work Against The Tiger King, Cockfighting in the News!



July 2, 2021

DEAR FRIENDS,

Two news stories ran last night that dealt with SHARK's hard work fighting against animal abuse. The first story covered SHARK's filming of horrific conditions at the new Tiger King zoo in Oklahoma.  

SHARK made multiple trips in the past few months to the zoo and captured video of animals being fed vile  and putrid "food," along with animals on the brink of starvation. In response to our filming of their zoo, the Lowes tried (and failed) to shoot down our drone. 
 

Read the story here:

The second story that ran yesterday dealt with SHARK and the Humane Farming Association's newspaper ad campaign to expose and shutdown cockfighting in Kentucky. 
"LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Two animal protection groups that have gone after cockfighting for the last two years are using advertising to try to raise public pressure to force law enforcement to act."

Please Sign Our Disney Anti-Rodeo Petition

The Disney+ streaming service is planning on making a movie glorifying animal abuse at rodeos. SHARK has formed a coalition to stand against this movie.

The movie, Aloha Rodeo, will glorify steer roping, the cruelest and deadliest event in rodeo, and the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, which has long held the dubious distinction of being among the world’s most brutal and deadly rodeos.
 

SHARK has uploaded the first of a series of videos to expose Disney’s plan to promote what amounts to the American version of bullfighting.
