For birds of prey, capturing an object midair is no big deal. The Dutch National Police decided to use this natural talent to their advantage. Eagles and other birds of prey have been trained by a Hague-based company to capture a new kind of prey: drones.
The Dutch police are using these trained birds in a new project to help them disable illegally operating drones. According to the project spokesman, the birds consider the drones to be a form of prey, and their natural instinct is to take them to a “safe” place.
Inspired by these drone-snatching eagles, we did some research and found there are lots of animals with some pretty insane job titles.
