  • Dutch National police will use eagles to take out illegal drones!

Guard Form and the Dutch National Police will work together to train eagles as birds of prey to target drones.

Illegal drones have become quite an irritating air traffic problem. Drones have been emerging near airports, firefighters, stadiums etc. To deal with the illegal drones some steps need to be taken. It seems the people in Deutschland have a very unique solution.

The Dutch Police will train eagles to hunt down illegal drones, according to AutoBlog. It was just announced the Guard From will be working with the Dutch National Police. They will be using trained raptors to target consumer-sized drones.

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. 

Seems like the United States should take a leaf out of the Dutch Police’s book right? But it may not be as easy as across the sea. Using birds to take down illegal drones may not be legal in the US. In the US the skies are the jurisdiction of the FAA and they need to approve the innovative approach.
