Hey PETA doesn’t the E stand for ethical? Where’s yours?
As companies like Domino’s Pizza and Amazon explore the use of drones for home delivery services, groups like the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are using them to spy on hunters and anglers. That’s something that doesn’t sit well with Pennsylvania Senator Richard Kasunic. He’s proposed two bills that, if passed, will outlaw the use of drones to disrupt legal fishing and hunting pursuits, according to the Pennsylvania Independent.
While activists claim to use drones to police poaching activities and report offenses to authorities, they’ve also reportedly filmed lawful hunting acts and leveraged the footage into propaganda—a privacy problem according to Senator Richard Alloway, chairman of the state Senate Game and Fisheries Committee.
“Most Americans don’t want drones spying on us or watching our activities for any reason, particularly if they’re not criminal,” Alloway said.
