SHARK is very pleased to announce that Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has signed legislation that would extend indefinitely the moratorium on cownose ray killing contests in the state! We want to congratulate all our partners in the "Save the Cownose Rays Coalition” who worked hard on this effort.
SHARK investigator Stu Chaifetz attended the signing and spoke to legislators present. What was clear was that our dramatic video from two years of these disgusting slaughters was absolutely critical to not just getting this issue the attention it deserved, but to spur legislators to take action.
SHARK fought for the rays hard and we were unrelenting in our efforts against the bowhunters who slaughtered these majestic animals en masse.
This is the third major victory we have announced this week, with the other two being successful campaigns against the Denver Post for sponsoring the deadly Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo with a train ride that is now no more, and of the Autism Society of the San Francisco Bay no longer involved with the vile Rowell Ranch Rodeo.
Please help us celebrate all these victories and the more to come with a generous donation. The truth is, SHARK is in desperate need of funds. We will be speaking to you more about this next week, but we truly need your help now.
In our last update we told you of a new campaign to get the Girl Scouts of Central and Southern NJ to disassociate themselves from the cruel Cowtown Rodeo.
“Why did the woman cross the road?”
“Who cares? What’s she doing out of the kitchen anyway?”
How then did the Girl Scouts respond to this? They wrote the following to us and many of our supporters:
We have no comment on the issue.
Thank you, Terri Mohr
