OK, my question is not about Pigion Hunts, Hunting, Angels, PETA blah blah blah. My question is how do property right work for “airspace”? As private drones become more common are there rules we should all know? If the neighborhood busybody wants to fly a drone over my back yard to see what I’m up to can I blast it? Assuming that (A) it is locally legal for me to discharge a firearm on my property and that (B) the drone has clearly crossed over my property line’s delineations. If the answer is yes, then how high does my property go? Would a police drone need a warrant to fly under a certain altitude to collect on your property. I’m not plotting a legal defense for the future. Not yet at least. I’m more focused on that damn neighbor creeping me out with his spy drone toy. I’m thinking I can take it down. But I’m no lawyer. I did drink with one once. Does that count?
NBC10: The drone, nicknamed “Angel,” was recording a live pigeon shoot on Sunday around 3 p.m. when investigators say it was suddenly struck by gunfire.
SHARK claimed “a single sharp rifle crack rang out,” in a press release sent out on Monday. The group says the camera’s video feed was terminated and the drone went out of control before it was manually brought down. The gunshot caused around $4,000 in damage to the camera, according to SHARK.
State Police are investigating the incident. SHARK claims this is the fourth time the drone has been shot at while trying to spy on what they claim are inhumane pigeon shoots.
