Pop Culture Frenzy, Round 43

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy.  Little drones flying in the sky have become a problem in many places.  The Dutch are trying out a unique strategy for removing drones from restricted areas.

What are they using to battle drones?

Hostmaster:  incorrect.  Some guy in Kentucky got arrested for shooting a drone flying over his daughter sun bathing in their back yard.  
Apparently, Peeping Toms have
 more rights than property owners.
I wonder if the Dutch
 would have arrested him.
Hostmaster:  hmmm.
Interceptor drones?
Hostmaster:  incorrect.
Force fields?
Hostmaster:  Ahhhh!  You're giving me flashbacks of bad sci-fi from the 50's and 60's!
Some fire fighters somewhere
in New York blasted a
 drone out of the sky.
Fire hoses?
Hostmaster:  incorrect.
Birds of Prey?
Hostmaster:  correct.  They are teaching Eagles to look upon small drones as prey.  They figure they can get the Eagles to catch the drones and bring them down to get a reward.
I think they should teach the
birds to look upon the
drone operators as prey.
Birds of Prey can hurt you bad.
I've seen squirrels
that were unrecognizable
after tangling with one. 
So ends another round of Pop Culture Frenzy.
Anyone interested in Dutch drone action, here's a link to the story.

  1. How about just throwing Henry at it?
    -Lois, Clover, and Lily [somewhat]

  2. I saw that on the news--those eagles don't mess around!

  3. I saw this too.
    The Birds didn't mess around.
    Why the heck do we let the crazies fly them ?
    Plus why do they have to have them ?

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Birds of prey would definitely come in handy in such cases!

  5. I read about this. I'm sure birds of prey could easily dispatch a drone, but what protects them from the propeller blades, especially if a drone operator initiates maneuvers to harm the bird? One of those blades could sever a leg.
