PETA Plans to Fly Drones That Would ´Stalk Hunters´
US News & World Report, by Jason Koebler

Original Article

Posted By:mickturn, 4/8/2013 4:42:08 PM

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is actively shopping for a drone that would "stalk hunters," the organization said Monday. The group says it will "soon have some impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat those who gun down deer and doves" and that it is "shopping for one or more drone aircraft with which to monitor those who are out in the woods with death on their minds."

Ummm, Target Practice!

The easement to fly above one´s land is for transit across only. It is an easement of practical necessity. Anything done otherwise is a trespass and illegal.

How long will it be before a drone is developed that would stalk and shoot down a drone that would stalk hunters?

I give it a month or two...tops.

Since the cost of a drone or two would bankrupt PETA I doubt that anything will come of this. If on the other-hand some lefty Hollywood types pony up the money I recommend a Crimson Trace laser to help site in those pesky drones to help folks target them better.

Honest, the dove flew in front of your drone. A hundred thousand dollars you say? Wow those things are pricey. Sure hope you have better luck with the next one. Too bad you can´t fly it above 400 feet with out getting licensed pilots and going through a lot of red tape, If you could go higher it might help with all these hunting accidents.

#4 is right. That would be trespass. And would be quite actionable. Plus, it will give some hunters a reason to get out that old 10 gauge goose gun. Kicks like a mad mule, but it´ll bring down a drone at 300 feet high - at least any drone PETA can afford.

My neighbor flies his remote controlled model airplane around in our area.

He says by strapping on a cherry bomb or an M-80 he figgers he can take down a PETA drone
any day of the week, and sacrificing the model plane would be worth it.

And I believe him more than I believe PETA.

And for those who are worried that shooting at the thing that is recording them may end them in trouble for discharging a gun at someone else´ s property, please call me.

I have a bunch of very disposable, highly controllable RC planes that can carry wires and other fun stuff and can totally foul that thing up very easily. I´ll pop for the battery and a cheap radio just for the fun of taking that thing down without firing a shot.

Does anyone else see the major problem looming here if PETA gets their grimey little hands on drones? If they can do it so can terrorist types. And that includes PETA. You don´t think they will stop at just looking do you? This type never does.

#23 the drone discussed is not like the large airplane-like drone used by the armed forces, but hobby drones that are readily available to everyone. Octocopter kit about 5K, ready-built about 15K. Capable of carrying about 12 pounds, very limited by battery life. They are delicate.

Meanwhile back at PETA headquarters, the PETA drones slaughter ´rescued´ animals at the rate of 98%. If PETA stalks me, they can say goodbye to their drones.

The November elections will determine the direction of US climate policy -- and therefore also energy policy and the pace of economic growth: jobs, standards of living, budget deficits and inflation. Obama has already promised to make climate change the centerpiece of his concern -- with all that implies: "Green" energy policy, linked to loss of jobs (Keystone pipeline disapproval), rising gas prices (ethanol mandates), and crony capitalism (Solyndra).

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
