Eagle takes down Drone in Dutch Police
Dutch national police forces in cooperation with company Guard From Above trains eagles to capture illegal drones.
Take down drones using a living animal is extremely pointless idea that we have ever heard. Could be to dangerous for the eagle?
LeBaron the director of the organization’s Christmas Bird Count claims that that birds can hit the drone in such a way that they don’t get injured by the rotors. The eagle attacks a drone the way a bird might attack another bird – in the middle of the back.
Drone technology develops day by day. Manufactured drones are becoming larger and more powerful, made of increasingly better and more sustainable components. Drones can fly with incredibly high speed. Even well trained eagle won’t have chance to catch devices with extremely high torque spinning blades of rigid plastic/carbon.
We advice to look for technology solution for illegal drone flights, insted expose eagles for possibly injuries.
For those who don’t see nothing wrong with that idea ,Mythbusters demonstrate how a home drone can injure a living being by pitting a rotor against a chicken.
