PETA Wants Drones To Spy On Hunters

April 8, 2013 by  

Even though People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals lacks the resources to find homes for thousands of animals it rescues and subsequently slaughters each year, the animal rights activist organization says it will purchase drones to “stalk” hunters.

According to U.S. News and World Report, the group says it “soon have some impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat those who gun down deer and doves” because they are “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 is reportedly looking to purchase a CineStar Octocopter, which is capable of carrying a DSLR camera or a smaller camera on longer flights.

“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.

The organization is currently looking to get Federal Aviation Administration approval for its missions and only revealed that some of the flights may occur in the Northeast this fall.

The video below shows what happened when another animal activist group tried a similar scheme:
