Steve Hindi, an avid hunter turned animal rights activist, has been assaulted, battered and threatened with a gun several times over the years for documenting perceived animal rights abuses or abusers with his camera.
Most recently, he was struck by a car by a man who works in the Pennsylvania gun club Hindi was protesting against last month.
Hindi posted a video Monday showing Frederick K. Campbell driving at a high speed, then veering off the road towards him, striking him before driving off.
Campbell, 58, ended up with a slap on the wrist, according to a local news report.
Fredrick K. Campbell, 58, of the 500 block of North 25th Street was issued a citation for driving at an unsafe speed Saturday after he struck protester Steve O. Hindi, 57, Elburn, Ill., near the entrance of the Wing Pointe Gun Club on Route 662, police said.Troopers said Campbell was making a right turn into the gun club shortly before 4 p.m. when he struck Hindi with the right front passenger side of his minivan. Campbell then continued into the gun club, troopers said.
The news report makes it seem as if it was a minor accident, but the video indicates it was a little more sinister than that.
The video also shows several other incidents between Hindi and Pennsylvania gun enthusiasts who like to shoot pigeons for sport.
At least one clips in that video apparently stems from this incident I wrote about earlier this year.
Hindi founded Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) in 1995. He describes his organization in depth in the video below.
