#1 PETA Plans to Fly Drones That Would 'Stalk Hunters'04-09-2013, 12:34 AM
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.
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

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.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

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