Dutch police have come up with a rather unique way to overcome wandering drones that pose threat to public safety.

As the use of drones is highly popular, Dutch police are using trained eagles that see drones as their prey. Each time they catch one, they are rewarded with a piece of meat.

The company trains eagles to catch unlicensed drones flying into sensitive air space or a public event such as a politician’s appearance.

“Guard from Above” is the first company in the world which especially trains birds of prey to intercept all sorts of drones.

They say eagle’s talons are strong and tough enough to seize most consumer-grade drones without injury from the blades.

However, the police have other options which include remotely hacking the drones, or shooting nets at the offending ones.
