It's a start.

It was earlier.  Baby eagles hatch with a drone already in their nest.  They get rewarded with food when they attack drones.  That's pretty much the entire article.  No word on why they hatch on a drone, or how effective they are at taking out a drone.  Autogenerating clickbait bot writes story about eagles.  What happens next is amazing.

Ok so.. How many Eagles are brutally injured by the props of drones ripping into their flesh, causing bleeding and organs to spew out all over the place and the eagle struggling to stay alive spiral towards Earth and land in a patch of land.. It huddles for days trying to nurse its wounds while maggots and various other forms of life start picking away at the dying bird until eventually is succumbs to its mortal drone prop wounds and is eaten alive...

Eagles have evolved to be able to capture prey while avoiding claws, talons, beaks etc that any prey might have, so it's not unreasonable that they could learn to capture drones while avoiding the blades. Remember to an eagle those blades are rotating so slowly they can easily see each blade. It would be like us watching an LP record. They probably grab a blade with each claw, stopping them dead.

Yep. Grabbed it by the blades.

What I was going to say.   Eagles attack from above right...so how do their talons not get propellered?

That crew (in the indoor horse arena) video needs to put up a better place for those birds to land.

A friend of a friend of a friend shot one down hovering over his house with a pellet gun. Shot it right in the camera housing on the bottom and enters the main center body. Not saying its just or legal just saying options exist if one wills it.

Not sure that would be legal however and chances are the bird would have better aim than me.

Net guns are also not legally guns, so cheap and legal

Pssh, eagles already think of drones as prey:

 
2017-02-16 07:43:11 PM  
They should at least arm the eagles with fricken lasers.

Not a good idea, it is a Federal Crime to shoot down a drone:

So what about using a high pressure hose to bring it down (assuming it's flying low enough)?
