Animal Rights Surveillance Drone Shot Down By Unidentified High Tech Weapon In South Carolina

February 18, 2012

A remote-controlled aircraft owned by an animal rights group was reportedly  shot down near Broxton Bridge Plantation Sunday near Ehrhardt, S.C.

Steve Hindi, president of SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness), said  his group was preparing to launch its Mikrokopter drone to video what he called  a live pigeon shoot on Sunday when law enforcement officers and an attorney  claiming to represent the privately-owned plantation near Ehrhardt tried to stop  the aircraft from flying.

“It didn’t work; what SHARK was doing was perfectly legal,” Hindi said in a  news release. “Once they knew nothing was going to stop us, the shooting stopped  and the cars lined up to leave.”He said the animal rights group decided to send the drone up anyway.

“Seconds after it hit the air, numerous shots rang out,” 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.”
