    Was just about to post this but saw you beat me to it. Pretty sick. I'm all for law enforcement. God knows there will be plenty of nuisance pilots as time goes on.

    Interesting that raptors would consider a quad prey...disturbing that humans would encourage this.

    I understand this is a Dutch article... But wouldn't it be illegal here to sic a bird on a legally registered aircraft?

    "...Are drones spying on you? Stealing your top secrets? Watching your movements? Exposing your contacts?"

    FYI, it's illegal to even have, keep, or own an American Eagle. Having an eagle feather in your possession is against the law in the U.S. too.

    The only Bald Eagle owned by an organization in the U.S. and allowed is named Challenger. It was an eaglet that was blown out of it's nest and found by a fisherman 22 years ago. He turned it over to a DNR agent who then turned it over to the organization that was allowed to raise the eaglet that now is considered tamed and flies over sporting events during the national anthem.

    Just saw on the local news. Eagles being trained in the Netherlands to take out illegally flown drones.

    Is the danger so grave that we need to put threatened species in harm's way? Not to mention the time and money? Not even close. The thought of sending a Bald Eagle after whirling plastic or carbon fiber blades frankly disgusts me.
