The hunter is now the hunted: With $5 million from Google, the World Wildlife Fund is deploying unarmed drones to track down wildlife poachers.

What the fuck, this is wrong on so many levels. Drones? To stop poachers? How will it distinct a hiker from hunter in the woods? Or a hiker with a pistol to protect himself from a rogue animal such as a bear or a Coyote etc etc? This is the worst, I hope this doesn’t pass. Drones in our country to spy on citizens is the worst crime, screw crimes againts animals. It’s about liberties. Drones shouldn’t be here spying on anyone.

There are better ways to stop poachers, drones are not.
