The video is in Dutch, but is worth the watch. Police in the Netherlands are training eagles to take down drones.

Drone technology can be used for good or for ill – this is an innovated and creative response to potential threat by drones.  An eagle can fly from 10,000 to 15,000 feet high, can reach speeds of up to 65 mph, and can carry about 75% of its body weight.  Eagles have power and range far out-stripping commercially-available drones.

Eagles for the win.
