Dutch Police Training Eagles to Snatch Drones from the Skies

If you thought it was cool that the Japanese police were using a drone with a net to capture rogue drones, check out what the police are doing in the Netherlands. Dutch cops are working with a company called Guard from Above to see if trained eagles can be used to snatch nefarious drones out of the sky.

As it turns out the eagles are able to instinctively capture a drone and take it to a place away from people on the ground. Apparently, the eagles then try to eat the drone, but the handlers swap the drone for something tasty the eagle can eat.

The experiment is ongoing, but it will be cool if this works out. My concern is that the fast whirring propellers might hack off an eagle leg or cause other injury to the bird.
