…Drones have feelings too…
An animal rights group in South Carolina claim that a helicopter drone they were using to film and expose a pigeon shoot was itself shot down by the hunters.
SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness), was working to shoot the video when police and an attorney tried to stop them. But when it was obvious that what they were attempting to do didn’t break any laws the pigeon shoot and its participants packed up to leave.
The group decided to launch their drone anyway, probably just to show off, and once it was airborne, BLAM, shots rang out from the tree line and the drone was hit.
“As an act of revenge for us shutting down the pigeon slaughter, they had shot down our copter,” said group leader Steve Hindi.
