Earlier today we sent out an alert about our new video focusing in on SKB Cases sponsorship of the American Bowhunters vile killing contest of pregnant cownose rays in Maryland.
Tonight we received the following email from SKB telling us that they have decided to halt their sponsorship of these cruel events!
Thank you for taking action when you saw our alert. As this campaign proves, your activism and our work combined can create change that helps animals!
Please thank SKB for doing the right thing and turning against this cruel killing contest.
SKB Cases: 714 637 1252
SKB greatly appreciates the relationships we’ve developed with all of our customers in every industry, and it is important to us that all events and individuals we sponsor are ethical and well within the scope of local laws. This has definitely been a humbling experience—one that ensures we will be vetting all sponsorship requests more closely in the future. Hopefully you’ll see this as our attempt to begin to make things right.
We wish you much success in your continued efforts to raise awareness about the cownose ray. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or would like to discuss this matter further.
