Hell yeah! It’s about time slob hunters are held accountable for their disgusting behavior. Maybe PETA can send a few drones to wolf country in the Northern Rockies and Great Lakes. Time to go on offense!!
“Hunters maim and kill millions of animals every year,” Mullins writes on the group’s website. “With more than five times as many wildlife watchers as there are hunters in the US, we hope to expose further why hunting is a sick and sickening pursuit.”…RT
So slob hunters, poachers and sadistic wolf killers….better look up, someone might be watching!
PETA Plans to Fly Drones That Would ‘Stalk Hunters’
PETA says it’s actively shopping for a drone to monitor hunters
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.”
The group says it will not weaponize the drones, but will use them to film potentially illegal hunting activity and turn it over to law enforcement.
“The talk is usually about drones being used as killing machines, but PETA drones will be used to save lives,” PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said in a statement.
They are currently considering purchasing the CineStar Octocopter, which is capable of carrying a DSLR camera for up to 5 minutes. With smaller cameras, the drone can fly for about 20 minutes. The group says it also hopes to fly drones over factory farms, fishing spots and “other venues where animals routinely suffer and die.”
