    US Citizens Shoot Down Animal Rights Group’s Surveillance Drone



    A remote-controlled aircraft owned and operated by an animal rights group called SHARK, was reportedly shot down near Broxton Bridge Plantation, South Carolina, on Sunday.
    TheTandD.com reports:

    Steve Hindi, president of SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness), said his group was preparing to launch its Mikrokopter drone to video what he called a live pigeon shoot on Sunday when law enforcement officers and an attorney claiming to represent the privately-owned plantation near Ehrhardt tried to stop the aircraft from flying.
    “It didn’t work; what SHARK was doing was perfectly legal,” Hindi said in a news release. “Once they knew nothing was going to stop us, the shooting stopped and the cars lined up to leave.”
    Hindi said the animal rights group decided to send the drone up anyway but that seconds after it hit the air “numerous shots rang out.”
    “As an act of revenge for us shutting down the pigeon slaughter, they had shot down our copter.”
    He claimed the shooters were “in tree cover” and “fled the scene on small motorized vehicles.”

    we're the hunters breaking the law? if not then where do these assholes get off flying that drone over them? I'd shoot it down if I had a chance.

    Why did they run? if they were within their rights to hunt i'd go out to them and shoot the damn thing again on the ground, just to be sure it was dead :D

    only reason I can think of is that they were shooting at the road, which could get them in trouble, not to mention destroying private property

    No trespassing means no trespassing. The use of technology does not negate the owner's property rights. Had it been me, I'd string the carcass from my rear-view mirror....

    Shooting over a road is a crime as is the destruction of property.

    It might vary by municipality but I've never heard of air space intrusions being legally definable as trespassing.

    FWIW I think it was pretty funny.
