SHARK and our friends at the Humane Farming Association have been tirelessly going after massive rooster breeding/cockfighting operations in Monterey County, CA. This included a lawsuit we filed to have a county anti-cockfighting ordinance enforced.
We recently returned to California and used our drones to see if the County was enforcing the law, which is supposed to limit properties to just 5 roosters unless they have a permit. As you can see in the news story covered by KION, there are still massive illegal rooster operations ongoing.
Watch the entire story HERE, including an interview with Steve Hindi.
• We will let you know what happens next. In the meantime, please politely email the Monterey County Board of Supervisors and ask that they have the law enforced:

As we told you recently, the Disney + streaming service is planning on making a movie glorifying animal abuse at rodeos. The movie, Aloha Rodeo, will glorify steer roping and the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, the cruelest rodeo in the world.
Earlier this month, SHARK President Steve Hindi was on a special podcast dealing with this issue. You can hear it HERE. Steve can be heard starting at 4 minutes and 45 seconds in.
SHARK has formed a coalition to stand against this movie:
