Many armies all over the world are looking for an effective solution against drones that collect information and take pictures on behalf of the enemy, including terrorist organizations. In Israel’s case, both Hamas and Hezbollah have attempted to send drones into Israeli territory.

The solution to this problem appears to be coming from France, where eagles are being trained to catch and destroy drones. As part of the trials that are being conducted, pieces of meat are attached to the bottom of the drones in order to teach the eagles to attack it from below so that they aren’t harmed by the propellers.
