Drones a headache for authorities
Sophisticated unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) also known as drones or UAS are moving from the battlefield into civilian life and Australia is leading the charge.

An environment group is about to become the first in Australia to deploy surveillance drones to hunt for evidence of animal abuse on private property.

Animal Liberation will operate a drone, equipped with a powerful camera, above free-range egg farms, sheep farms and cattle yards to gather evidence of abuse.

Drone 'catching' will probably become a new sport.

Interesting video Roderick, and so was the "video response" by another drone operator.

Hopefully it wouldn't be open season on all drones. Perhaps just the dangerous ones in green clothing?

Gun ownership required? :rolleyes:

No guns required, just another drone towing a section of rabbit wire or a string net. :D :D

Anyone that intentionally shoots down drones that are not over their property could render themselves liable for a lawsuit to replace the drone.

Over one's own property, the rules might be less clear.

The drone operators also need to comply with existing laws and regulations, such as maintaining line of sight to the drone at all times.

In short, it's quite murky legally with copious opportunity for both sides to incur liability towards the other.

There could be a bit of fun as well.
On some sites they are looking at the possibility of using them to spot game and as towing aircraft for a string of balloon targets for a bit of shotgun practice.

Interesting, though for spotting game drones may not be the best option if the noise of the drones spooks the game. A camera tied to a tethered garbage bag filled with helium could work well and would be silent.

According to Tim Blair, shooting drones is easy and fun (video link).
