This will inevitably escalate to drones with sharpened, eagle-foot-detaching propellers, of course
Was gonna say, cover them in razor blades.
Or fill them with rat urine that squirts at the handler of the eagle.
They're big birds yet nimble in flight. I recently watched a pair of them haze an osprey over some prime fishing real estate. The two birds carved lazy spirals in the setting sun, hunting for fish in a small lake below. The osprey took flight and was game for some action but just overwhelmed by the bald eagles, stalled in midair, great claws slashing and crackling. They're used to taking damage down there and you _need_ those props to keep in the air? Thing is, he'll just come in from underneath once he recognizes what it is. Excellent choice of drone killer, dutch guy!
I'm exceedingly amused by how much authoritative bodies loathe drones and are trying to legislate them out of the sky.
To be fair, it's just a matter of time until a drone brings down a 747 birdstrike-style.
You actually have to pass tests and have a license and be registered with air traffic control to fly a small plane in the same airspace chucklefucks with a drone just blithely fuck around with no concern over the consequences of their actions.
You don't have to be authoritarian to see how that's a recipe for disaster in the making.
Oh don't get me wrong, I wasn't saying their loathing was misplaced or that measures against drones were unwarranted, and I don't disagree with you.
I just find it amusing and feel like they're fighting a losing battle.
ahh, the sweet, sweet smell of dutch freedom.
ahh, the sweet, sweet smell of dutch oven.
Dutch freedom has to mean something in 50's slang.
it probably is related to "rough trade". i can almost see it as the the title of a Tom of Finland lithograph.
I hoped they had it outfitted with some badass looking plate armor for its talons
I am hoping they make for them a head mounted infrared tracking camera and an eye targeted laser that fires when the eagle's endocrine system releases "attack" chemicals.

Did... did the Dutch of all people just prove Ben Franklin wrong once and for all?
