Shooter hits Hindi with car
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, September 2011:
HAMBURG, Pa.–Fredrick K. Campbell, 58, of Lower Alsace
Township, Pennsylvania, was on September 3, 2011 cited by state
police for driving at an unsafe speed after striking Showing Animals
Respect & Kindness founder Steve Hindi with his mini-van near the
entrance of the Wing Pointe Gun Club. Hindi, present to protest a
pigeon shoot, sought hospital treatment for knee and hand injuries.
Several SHARK video and still cameras captured the incident,
the sixth in 2011 in which Wing Pointe pigeon shooters responded to
protesters with violence. Robert M. Boyd, 47, of Ringoes, New
Jersey, was cited for summary harassment after allegedly reaching
into a SHARK vehicle on April 17 to try to prevent SHARK activist
Janet Enoch from videotaping him as he left a pigeon shoot. Hindi on
the same day suffered a bloodied head when hit by an unidentified
assailant with the metal end of a dog leash. Robert Olsen, 61, of
Warminster, Pennsylvania, received two summary citations for a
February 22 confrontation in which Enoch videotaped him in the act of
pointing a handgun at Hindi.
A SHARK Octocopter drone video camera platform remains
snagged in a tall tree near Wing Pointe, after allegedly being shot
down on January 2, 2011. A second SHARK Octocopter was hit by
gunfire on August 3, but was not downed. After state police failed
to bring charges, SHARK released photos of the suspected shooters.
Hindi founded SHARK in 1992. SHARK campaigns ended pigeon
shooting in Illinois later that year, and helped to end the oldest
and largest pigeon shoot in the U.S., held at Hegins, Pennsylvania
from 1935 to 1999.
