    PETA says it's actively shopping for a drone to monitor hunters

    By Jason Koebler
    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is actively shopping for a drone that would "stalk hunters," the organization said Monday.


    The group says it will "soon have some impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat those who gun down deer and doves" and that it is "shopping for one or more drone aircraft with which to monitor those who are out in the woods with death on their minds."

    The group says it will not weaponize the drones, but will use them to film potentially illegal hunting activity and turn it over to law enforcement.



    "The talk is usually about drones being used as killing machines, but PETA drones will be used to save lives," PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said in a statement.

    They are currently considering purchasing the CineStar Octocopter, which is capable of carrying a DSLR camera for up to 5 minutes. With smaller cameras, the drone can fly for about 20 minutes. The group says it also hopes to fly drones over factory farms, fishing spots and "other venues where animals routinely suffer and die."

    I'm not a hunter but I would very much enjoy shooting these things down and displaying them as trophies, the more expensive the better. Bring um on!

    What's needed is a drone to record when PETA dumps the 80-90 percent of animals they kill.

    It's worth the $1.75/round to spend one round taking that out.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    Depending on the range, you might be able to use a shotgun. Think skeet, but with more expensive targets.

    All the more reason to shoot them down. Come to think of it, counter drones would be a really cool idea. Basically, they can fly up to the drone and drope mesh or chaff to screw up the propellers and down them. Drone dogfighting could become the next big sport!

    The sport is at least 10 years old. Another anti-hunting group built a photo drone after it was denied access to a private bird hunting reserve... you can guess what happened when the drone crossed the property line. Both the Police and the Courts said that since they were denied access to the property in verbal and written form, and that they flew said drone over the property anyway, they were trespassing and as such had to incur the loss of the $3500 craft... The reserve hung it as a trophy

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
