The drones will be knocked out safely by the eagles out of the sky. The majestic eagles will be used like birds of prey. The idea if successful may be the safest possible way to take out drones.
According to the Dutch National Police they're concerned about drones used for criminal purposes. The Police have been working on ways to prevent unwanted drone use.
Mark Wiebe is the innovation manager of the Dutch National Police. According to Wiebe certain incidents with ambulatory helicopters and interference from drones have occurred.
The drones simply should not fly because of security concerns. The police also stated that finding the drone operator can be next to impossible.
So as a solution the police will enlist the help of drone-fighting birds. The birds will swoops in and yank the drone down. The drones will then be dropped somewhere safely away from human beings.
