Colorado Town May Pay You $100 to Shoot Down Any U.S. Drone

Deer Trail, Colorado, the ranching town that prides itself on hosting the first ever rodeo, is considering putting paid bounties on unmanned drones.

The town is planning to pay any hunter $100 for shooting down any unmanned drone that appears to be “owned or operated by the United States federal government.”

This decision is more symbolic than anything. The town wants to express its opinions against the domestic use of drones.

“This is a very symbolic ordinance,” according to Philip Steel, the resident who drafted the ordinance. “Basically, I do not believe in the idea of a surveillance society.”

The FBI has already admitted to using drones domestically, and the Customs & Border Protection agency has recently stepped up its drone program over the Mexican boarder.
