The walls of Steve Hindi’s home were once adorned with the trophies of
dead animals, such as that of a shark he caught and a king salmon.
Today, Hindi said he seeks to attain different kinds of trophies -- that of
media exposure of animal abuse, such as through articles in the Chicago
Tribune and the New York Times.
Hindi is the president of the
Geneva-based nonprofit Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, or SHARK.
Hindi and other members of SHARK recently began testing a new version of
their remote-controlled flying octocopter in a field in the Geneva area.
Looking like a mini-UFO, the octocopter shoots into the sky about 400
feet as Hindi and SHARK member Mike Kobliska monitor from the ground.
