Horrific Ray Killing Contest Exposed
On June 22, SHARK and Fish Feel held a press conference in Annapolis, MD, where we released shocking new footage of the horrific ray killing contest we filmed on June 13.
Media coverage of the cruel ray slaughter:

In one instance captured on film, one of the contestants put his hand inside the mother the push the baby back in. In another, a dead baby was attached to the mother ray by a string.
Please contact Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford ask them to stop all future ray killing tournaments:
TV Station Rejects Anti-Rodeo Ads
SHARK attempted to take out TV advertisements exposing the cruelty of the Reno Rodeo on Reno television station KRNV, however, the station rejected the ads calling them "...too graphic..." even though they are a sponsor of the rodeo itself, at which this footage was taken. So much for objective media.
