DEER TRAIL, Colo. (July 17, 2013)—Local leaders in Deer Trail, Colo., are considering an ordinance that would create aerial drone hunting licenses and offer bounties to anyone who shoots one down.
While they admit they’ve never actually seen a drone on the Eastern Plains, they say they want to make a statement that using unmanned surveillance planes to spy on Americans is wrong.
The ordinance is mostly symbolic and officials say they recognize it's against the law to destroy federal property.
The licenses would cost $25 a year and the ordinance calls for offering a $100 reward to anyone who provides identifiable pieces of a downed drone.
