This photo was taken in March 2016, by Koen van Weel in the Netherlands. The bird of prey was a trained eagle from the company “Guard from Above” that used the animals during a training session with the Dutch police to intercept drones. the police, however, found the eagles to be somewhat unreliable and working with real animals required too much time and effort. The police also admitted that catching drones mid-air might not be entirely safe for the eagles. The tests were subsequently halted in 2017.
