Dutch Police Train Big Birds To Down Drones

Several methods have been developed, and several others have been sardonically suggested, to get rid of pesky drones hovering above.  One innovative solution to a drone problem in The Hague is the use of birds - birds of prey.  A Dutch bird-training company, Guard From Above, and the Dutch National Police have partnered to get the unwanted interlopers out of the skies without damage to the attacking birds or the drones.  See an eagle in action!

Mac Is This Year's Newest Clydesdale!
