The Cinestar Octocopter is among the UAVs that PETA is reportedly looking to purchase for the purpose of watching hunters.
If you are a hunter you are going to love this one. According to this article in U.S. News & World Report People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals or PETA is shopping around for a suitable drone to “stalk Hunters”.
The group says that it will “soon have some impressive new weapons at its disposal to combat those who gun down deer and doves”. That is deliberately provocative language that indicates to me that they are more interested in confrontation and headlines than anything else.
Although they won’t disclose exactly where they are planning their operations they specifically mention targeting Big Horn Sheep and bow hunts.
This is a really bad idea. I predict that PETA will not be able to resist the urge to progress from observation to harassment for very long if at all. Either way their presence is not going to be appreciated by people engaging in a legal heavily regulated activity. If there is trouble, and you know there will be, PETA will be the ones that started it.
