Going hunting for drones
Deer Trail, Colo., is considering legislation that would create drone-hunting licenses and offer $100 bounties for each downed unmanned aerial vehicle. “We do not want drones in town,” said Philip Steel, who proposed the ordinance. “I do not believe in the idea of a surveillance society.” Steel says that even if his bill fails to pass the town board, he knows what he’ll do the first time he spots an unmanned aircraft hovering over Deer Trail. “I’m gonna shoot it down,” he said. “Ordinance or no.”
