Hahaha,

"Seconds after it hit the air, numerous shots rang out," [SHARK leader] Hindi said in the release. "As an act of revenge for us shutting down the pigeon slaughter, they had shot down our copter." He claimed the shooters were "in tree cover" and "fled the scene on small motorized vehicles."

Sounds like a productive hunt.

    I think I'll call BS on their claim. The drone would have to be pretty close for a load of bird shot to hit it and if they were that close, what's the chance of them not only retrieving the drone but having the time look for and find a tiny piece of plastic.

    Ya know, I was thinking about these.

    A decent RC plane isnt real expensive, add 3 streamers of fishing line, one off each wing and the tail, and do a little flying around the drones.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Story sounds bogus to me for entirely different reasons. Assuming these pigeon hunters were retasked dove hunters, the ones I've hunted with from that state would shoot down the drone, then walk up to the disabled drone and obliterate it in a hail of bird shot. And then go back to shooting pigeons for eatin'. For me, anyway, the story doesn't pass the smell test.
