PETA Uses Drones to Prevent Hunting Violations

PETA will fly drones over hunting grounds to protect wounded animals from suffering and expose people who use unlawful hunting techniques.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is utilizing hobby drones to monitor hunters to ensure that they are not breaking any laws such as using spotlights, implementing feed lures, setting bait for geese, or orphaning bear cubs. The organization also aims to prevent the suffering of animals who are shot and flee into the wild. PETA launched its first “Air Angel” drone last week outside of Boston, and the organization notes that soon they will be used throughout the US. “PETA’s drones will help protect wildlife by letting hunters know that someone may be watching—and recording—them, so they should think twice before illegally killing or maiming any living being,” says PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk.
