The government of British Columbia passed a new law that prohibits the use of quadcopters. According to them, hunters have gone too far. The new law complements the existing, which stipulates a ban on the use for hunting helicopters, and very decent fines: $2500 to $250000. Particularly malicious offenders are at risk of going to jail for 2 years. Probably not everyone approves of the decision of the government, but where is the reasonable border between sport hunting and the indecent advantage of man before animals?
What if tomorrow the hunters will be prohibited from using camouflage, guns, traps and gps trackers for orientation on the terrain, because if you look at it – all this is not fair and unsportsmanlike. But while guns are legal, you can go hunting, and leave the quadrocopter to shoot incredible landscapes from bird’s eye view.
