Here's a great way to get rid of drones that are flying where you don't want them. No firearm discharge required.

Watch a police eagle take down a drone | Fox News

Police in Holland are touting a unique anti-drone weapon – a specially trained eagle.

The Dutch National Police have trained an eagle to take down Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), as revealed in a video posted to YouTube Sunday.

The video, which is in Dutch, shows an eagle swooping to grasp a small commercial drone in its talons before landing with its ‘prey’.

A quadcopter drone that crashed onto the White House grounds last year highlighted the growing security threat posed by small UAVs. The White House incident came less than two weeks after a drone flew over the French presidential palace in Paris.

Only the bird handler was clean shaven. ... :D

As much as I love drones both in general and the ones I own, I have to admit that the idea of a huge bird pulling it out of flight is pretty funny. :D

I doubt it could handle my nitro powered helicopter.

My helicopter would be in very good challenge for it. Even it got close, I bet the rotor blades would do a number on the eagle.
