Colorado town rejects plan to let residents shoot drones

An amusing story for a Friday. Amazon and its rivals, keen to invest in drones as the delivery vehicle of the future, have been spared what could have been a rather annoying expense. This week Deer Trail, a town in Colorado, voted not to issue “drone hunting licences”. The proposal, which noted that a 1964 Supreme Court judgment states that a property extends 1,000ft into the airspace above it, suggested charging $25 for a licence to shoot drones down – with a bounty of as much as $100 for a government-marked one. The town has decided to stick to coyotes and deer instead.
