Remember the Tokyo Drone Hunting Squad? Dumbest idea ever. Well, the Dutch are going to give Japan a run for their money.
A new trial is underway using an amazing bird of pray, the eagle, to intercept drones that might be in the way during an emergency. Is this really that big of a problem? Maybe it is.
The Dutch National Police are working with a raptor training company (Guard From Above) to teach eagles to recognize a Drone and grab it with its talons and bring it down. Sounds good until you see the size and power of aftermarket carbon fiber blades. These poor birds are going to be having their legs chopped off. Vide of this eagle drone hunting team after the break.
