SHARK is leading the way for animals and for the animal protection movement with hard-hitting, high-tech documentation that exposes animal cruelty and those committing the abuse. Add to that an extreme tenacity second-to-none in the movement and SHARK is like no other organization working today. Get to know our work below.
Anyone with a heart knows it's wrong to clothesline a baby animal, body slam it to the ground, tie its legs so it can't move, and drag it by the neck. If this were done to a puppy or kitten, the offender would understandably be charged with a crime, and likely be jailed.
In rodeos, however, it's called calf roping, and supporters claim it's a sport. But the abuse of baby cows is just one of rodeo's cruelties. Click to see SHARK's video proof from years of rodeo investigations.
Pigeon shoots are competitions wherein thousands of live birds are shot to win prizes. A typical 3-day shoot contest can kill and injure up to 15,000 birds.
Pigeon shoots are nothing more than a vile excuse for entertainment for the dull-witted or psychopathic. Illegal in other countries and in all but a couple of American states, most people realize the despicable nature of these bird-killing contests.
Bullfighting is one of the most defensible types of animal abuse. SHARK's graphic footage shows the horror of what happens at these events.
Dare to look at this. The pointless barbarism and cowardice is undeniable.
"Deer management programs," which are in reality mass slaughters, are not the clean, efficient or humane culling programs "wildlife experts" would have the public believe.
Whether the method is sharpshooting, rocket netting, net trapping, etc., the massacres are problematic and cruel, with the animals paying for every mistake their executioners make.
Cage-raised birds shot as they are ejected from cages -- deer populations purposely inflated to excess -- government slaughters in the name of "nuisance control."
Hunters claim they "harvest" wildlife, but in fact they are raping nature for the thrill of the kill. Check out SHARK's undercover videos exposing these horrors.
The American tradition of loving and respecting horses existed long before there was a United States. Americans counted on horses to build this nation; to plow the fields and to carrying soldiers to battle. Horses are for many people part of their family.
Unfortunately, not everyone in the United States gives the horse the respect it deserves. There are those who are willing to see horses killed for profit, and that is who this website seeks to expose. Horse slaughter proponents claim to care about horses, but the facts and the video footage tell a very different story.
