Colorado? Town Considers Bounty For Unmanned Aerial Vehicles / Drones. [View all]

Last edited Thu Jul 18, 2013, 05:44 AM - Edit history (1)

Residents of Deer Trail, Colo., a small town 60 miles east of Denver, are considering an ordinance to issue hunting licenses for drones and a bounty system to reward anyone who shoots down or damages an unmanned aerial vehicle.

"They fly in town, they get shot down," explained Phillip Steel, the Deer Trail resident who drafted the anti-drone ordinance, per Denver's 7News.

A draft of the anti-drone ordinance, provided by DeerTrailColorado.com, would allow the town to issue an unlimited number of drone-hunting licenses for $25 each, so long as those issuing the licenses follow basic guidlines.

No background checks would be required, and all licenses would be "issued on an anonymous basis." Additionally, there's no residency requirement, so long as the hunting occurs within Deer Trail only. The license applicant must also be older than 21 and "able to read and understand English."
