PETA head Ingrid Newkirk sits inside a cage during a protest outside a KFC outlet in Mumbai, India, on November 6, 2014The head of PETA, the world's largest animal rights group, demanded an end Saturday to all forms of trophy hunting, which she denounced as a hideous pastime plied by rich, callous thrill seekers. "You have these sort of coach potato trophy hunters who go over to Africa and they wave a lot of money in front of people," said PETA head Ingrid Newkirk, who told CNN that the animals which become their prey "are basically wheeled out" to be hunted. It's very common for them to shoot at night because they can then (use a spotlight to) blind the animal who's come in to eat," Newkirk told the cable network.
