    PETA drones a trophy prize for US hunters

    PETA intends to monitor American hunters with drones. Be careful what
    you wish for.

    PETA has announced plans to film U.S. hunters with UAVs, declaring it
    "will soon have some impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat
    those who gun down deer and doves." PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, in
    full rut, said: "Slob hunters may need to rethink the idea that they can
    get away with murder, alone out there in the woods with no one watching."

    Apparently close to buying a CineStar Octocopter, which can fly for
    approximately 20 minutes with a small camera, PETA plans on sending it
    "over factory farms, popular fishing spots, and other venues where
    animals routinely suffer and die."

    Bet on it, American hunters will be waiting on incoming PETA drones and
    there won't be many return flights.

    What's the daily limit on drones?

    How can a private party get the right to conduct a warrantless search or invasion of personal privacy? Wouldn't that mean that you (or anyone of us) could plant such monitoring devices on our neighbors? Sounds illegal to me.

    I've been looking into un-manned aerial photo platforms for use in my business. Could open up some aerial photography venues for me as I really hate to fly, esp in helicopters. One big topic on the main discussion board is proposed legislation that would put some pretty serious limitations on both private and government use of such devices. Looks like there will be some licensing requirements and then restrictions as to use over private or public property possibly requiring permission not only the property over which one was flying, but also from any property that would be seen in any images. Personally, I think that some of the proposed regs for private use are too draconian, but snooping seems to me to be a reasonable prohibition. One thing about shooting them down is that they can fly legally as high a 400 feet and that't a pretty long shot even for most riflemen when shooting at something that is best represented as an 18" sphere moving pretty quickly.
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    If some idiot shoots at a drone with a rifle.......then maybe PETA has a point.
