When animal protection hero Bob Barker gave SHARK an generous grant a few months
ago, we were determined to not only continue with our current efforts to expose
rodeo cruelty, stop Pennsylvania pigeon shoots and deal with other animal
cruelty issues, but to also go where no animal protection organization has gone
Because of the cowardly nature of animal abusers, cruelty often occurs unseen on
private property or otherwise away from public access. The air, however,
is open to the public, with certain restrictions.
We did a lot of research to see how we could use this to our advantage,
formulated a plan, and went to work. Once again, SHARK has developed yet
another revolutionary tool that no one else in our movement has to go after
animal abusers. After months of hints and anticipation, SHARK is unveiling
Operation Angel - a fleet of remote controlled aircraft.
Armed with high definition video and still cameras, the Angels will expose
animal abuse as never before. Abusers will no longer be able to hide away
from roads, in woods or behind fences. Our cameras will catch them.
Operation Angel, while ready to operate now, is still in its infancy. The
program will continue to develop and refine as technology continues to advance.
Rather then going into the details of what is to come, we'll simply show you
results over the coming months and years.
This is the very beginning of something very, very big. We'll soon post a
YouTube video of the Angels, which will then be followed by video documentation
gathered in the field when the Angels are used in actual evidence gathering
We'll close this announcement with a special note to our opposition, many of
whom subscribe to SHARK's e-mail updates:
Be warned - you can run, but now more than ever before, you can't hide.
The Angels will find you and expose you. The Angels will especially focus
on the cowards involved in Pennsylvania' s pigeon shoots, but they'll also be on
the lookout for dog fighters, cockfighters and any other animal abusers.
These Angels are in effect hunters shooting only with cameras, and animal
abusers are their prey. We expect hunting to be very, very good.
Erdman Pigeon Shoot
As has been the case in Pennsylvania for decades, the June 6 pigeon shoot at the
misnamed Erdman Sportsmen's Association showcased a bunch of cowards.
The continued allowance of this offense against any humane ethic by so-called
leaders on both sides of the political aisle exposes a vacuum in Pennsylvania
that spans from border to border.
SHARK investigators documented the Erdman blood festival, employing all three of
our Hi-Pod devices to raise our cameras high into the air so we wouldn't miss a
We are now going through that documentation in anticipation of charges to be
filed by Pennsylvania humane officer Johnna Seeton, who already has some two
dozen charges filed against the same Erdman club for a shoot last year, again
based on SHARK's video documentation.
The Red Cross Does the Right Thing
While at the Erdman slaughter, we noticed that a club sign placed in a futile
attempt to block our efforts included a reference to the Red Cross - an obvious
attempt to make it appear that the humanitarian organization somehow supported
Erdman's cowardly animal abuse.
We contacted the Red Cross, and included a link to a YouTube video showing the
cruel Erdman pigeon shoots. As a result, the Red Cross has stated that it
has ordered the removal of its name from the Erdman sign.
SHARK thanks the Red Cross for saying NO! to any association with animal abuse!
SHARK Goes Where No Other Animal Organization Has Gone Before
SHARK consistently uses cutting edge technology to fight against animal cruelty,
such as with the Angel helicopters, but the reality is that it is very
expensive. We need your help if we are to continue to be the impressive, strong
force for animals that we are.

"Kindness and compassion towards all living beings is a mark of a civilized
society. Racism, economic deprival, dog fighting and cock fighting,
bullfighting and rodeos are all cut from the same defective fabric: violence.
Only when we have become nonviolent towards all life will we have learned to
live well ourselves." - Cesar Chavez, civil rights and labor
