Netherlands and Guard From Above Training Eagles to Safely Take Down Drones

By: | February 8th, 2016


Dutch police are collaborating with a raptor training company named Guard From Above in an attempt to train eagles to take down rogue drones.

Honestly, it’s a pretty genius idea to train birds of prey for such a thing versus having some idiot with a gun going “drone hunting.”

While testing is still ongoing to make it as safe as possible for the eagles, you can clearly see in the footage below how easily an eagle can take out a drone.

In the future, it’s possible we see some type of animal dream team specifically deployed to take out drones, which could include eagles, gorillas, geese, dogs, and kangaroos.

If this happens, a movie needs to be made ASAP!
