But still NOTHING has been done. Four men allegedy dragged a shark going at super high speeds while the still-live black tip sharks body was beating against the unforgiving waves. This story has gone viral in numerous media outlet all around the globe. A few of these animal abusers doing this sick shit for mere entertainment have had a history of wildlife and animal abuse.

We have officially delivered our petition to Ed Brodsky and Andrew Van Sickle of the 12th Judicial Circuit. They refused to meet with us in person, but news agencies filmed as I handed the 250,000+ signatures to the receptionist who agreed to deliver our message. The delivery location was the Manatee County Building at 1112 Manatee Ave W. Bradenton, FL 34206.
I cannot express how much gratitude I have for everyone who showed up. It was wonderful meeting you all as we delivered this monumental document.

This is a non-violent protest. No weapons. Do not block traffic. Do not brings signs with sticks. Do not harass the office workers. We are simply here to let the FWC and the 12th Judicial Court know that the public is watching this case very closely, and that we expect these men to be charged for their animal abuse crimes.
Please bring bottles of water, and snack food for everyone. Wear large brimmed hats (it will be hot).
Look, Florida’s f*cked up enough from all these outsiders coming here and desecrating our beautiful state. We don’t need any more visitors… and certainly not more privileged, sexist, racist, spoiled brats who torture animals. Share these photos, and keep the pressure on. One of the guys on the show (the producer’s son) is friend’s with Michael Wenzel, the infamous animal torturer, and was allegedly on the boat filming the incident. He issued a public “apology,” which means nothing really. F*ck MTV and f*ck their stupid show. Let’s not turn the beautiful Siesta Key into another garbage Jersey Shore. Full Story »
I want to present a proposed amendment to our State Legislature for consideration of amending the current animal cruelty laws specifically F.S. 828.12 (2)(a)(b) from a third degree felony to a second degree felony and to impose stricter, harsher punishment and penalties in the event of the abuse, torture, and killing of innocent animals.
Animal abuse is a common thing in Florida, let’s make the punishment more severe.
