Drones to catch rhino poachers!

Google just announced plans to help the World Wildlife Fund buy drones that will fly over the endangered animals to take photos of poachers that can be used to catch and prosecute them. RC helps conservation … what could be better?

    What could be better? Not much! Wonder if they need a pilot. I think they should actually arm the drones. They could save the legal system a lot of trouble. :-)

    Maybe they can use the One-Armed UAVs to swoop down and relieve them of their weapons!
