Crush Cockfighting

Update Page for Cockfighters Who Brutally Attacked Animal Welfare Investigators

On January 3rd, 2021, two investigators from SHARK drove to a suspected illegal cockfighting operation in Lawrence County, OH. Soon after arriving, SHARK President Steve Hindi was violently attacked, suffering multiple injuries including a head injury requiring six staples and a broken rib. Another investigator was pursued by cockfighters who rammed his car multiple times sending the car out of control into a ditch. These were two attempts of murder. SHARK is demanding a full investigation and maximum prosecution of all appropriate charges.

Crush Cockfighting

Cockfighting is an illegal blood sport where roosters are trained to fight and kill each other. They often have sharp blades attached to their legs so they can tear each other apart.

Cockfighting is illegal in all 50 states, yet these bloody, barbaric events are ongoing across our country. SHARK has already taken the initiative against cockfighting by using our drones to film suspect rooster farms in Illinois and California. We are now announcing a new nationwide campaign called Crush Cockfighting, that will expose these illegal animal fights like never before, and we'll work hard to have those involved held accountable under the law.

Illegal Cockfighting Operations We Have Shut Down to Date

As of January 2021, these locations of cruel, illegal cockfights have been reported to the State Police, and are being monitored by SHARK investigators. We expect that the criminal animal abusers running these operations will nevertheless try to restart their operations at some point. Please thank the state police in advance for doing their job by shutting these operations down, and encourage the relevant county sheriff's offices to do their part also (contact info at bottom of page).
