Forget anti-drone drones, one of nature's most majestic hunters may soon play a valuable role in taking down dangerous UAVs. As part of a new trial, the Dutch National Police force has begun training eagles to intercept troublesome drones during an emergency, when another capture device might put people below at risk.

Pretty cool... nice idea, but what about those big drones? They might be a bit more dangerous for the bird to take out.

Is this really where we need to go?

Hawks attack gliders all the time so why an eagle? BTW eagles are a federally protected species and I don't believe this practice would be allowed.

Only bald and golden Eagles are protected. Many other eagle species are not protected.

Kinda Looks like the Song of a Nation

Don't think you can purchase them --so the drones should be safe.

Is this really where we need to go?
If SAM can manufacture drones why can't Sam manufacture Anti Drones?

Look's Fun - Are they Tasty ??

Those are the DUTCH guys - they also pump water with Wind Turbines and invented the wooden shoe. Clog's
I don't believe this practice would be allowed.

Oh BOY It's a Very Good Week : That's where the Lil- Sparrow comes in -

Really? Is this what it's come to?

Approximately 10 kids are killed every year playing football. Kids. Killed. Every year. http://mmqb.si.com/mmqb/2015/11/24/high-school-football-deaths-2015

Can someone point me to a reference where there has been a serious injury caused by a drone? Point me to a case of damage to property worthy of the hysteria I'm seeing. Has there been a case where someone's privacy has been seriously breached?

OK. I understand there is no future in waiting for a disaster to spur action but really - this has grown to really stupid levels.

In America, one of the below is perfectly legal and you are free to carry it into a Walmart and buy some tuna-fish. The other requires a Federal license to operate.

If you look closely, in slo-mo, you can see the eagle first checks to see if the little FAA number is displayed on the aircraft. Apparently it wasn't.

oops, bounced it!

Obama has blasted hundreds of kids to pieces with his drones. Why did we let folks start calling our toy helis drones?

I didn't see an FAA number on that remotely trained eagle....

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Nope : Not Fair Game

He brings it back to the Eagle Driver : See that's how the Eagle Driver makes his money. To train Young Eagle's with bait !

Those are the Fledglings !

He has a self full filling Drone Junk Yard $$$and used Lypo dept. For the poor and down trodden.

Them Parrots get barking on the way home and drop em in the tree's.
That is a WHOLE different issue : Working on it !
