DEAR FRIENDS,

SHARK has been in California this week to deal with two very important issues. The first issue is that of a horse who was severely injured at the 2018 Folsom Rodeo. The horse suffered from a suspected spinal cord injury, however, instead of giving the horse the care needed, Cotton Rosser, the rodeo contractor, carted the horse away to an unknown, but most likely dire fate. You can watch our original video about this HERE.

SHARK President Steve Hindi appeared before both the Folsom City Council and the California Veterinary Medical Board to talk about this issue. Video from both events have been uploaded to Facebook and can be seen HERE  and HERE.

• Please contact the Folsom City Council and tell them that they should contact the Chamber of Commerce and tell them that this issue is making the city look bad. Tell them that since this has been mishandled so badly, the rodeo should no longer be allowed in town. Please be polite and respectful.

On October 15th, both Steve and SHARK Investigator Janet Enoch appeared before the Monterey County Board of Supervisors  to raise the issue of illegal rooster operations that violate the county's five rooster limit. A permit can be obtained to allow more roosters, but there are currently no active permits in the county. There are, however, an estimated one thousand illegal rooster operations in Monterey County.

Watch the news coverage of SHARK's campaign HERE

 

On our trip to CA, we used our drones in just three small areas of the county and documented thirty properties violating the law. Cockfighting is horrendous and disgusting and it’s long past time that serious action was taken. This is why we are publishing the addresses of 30 property locations we've filmed with our drones that are in violation of the law. Those addresses can be viewed on THIS link.

• Please contact the Monterey County Board of Supervisors and demand they take action to eliminate the illegal rooster operations. Tell them to give Animal Control the resources they need. It has been 5 years since the ordinance went into effect and nothing has been done!

SHARK is vowing to continue to monitor the county for more illegal rooster operations, and will also make those public. For more information about SHARK’s anti-cockfighting initiative, please visit:
