Dutch police are investigating a novel approach to citizens guilty of what might be called drone abuse: They're training eagles to take the tiny copters out of the sky.
A company called Guard from Above has been contracted to train the raptors, following a reported increase in the number of drone incidents in Denmark.

According to a Dutch police press release on the initiative, such incidents usually have to to do with security - drones flying in places where they're not allowed, for example. Interference with air ambulances is another infraction police in the country have seen.
Cue the eagles.
As can be seen in the accompanying video (in Dutch, but the visual gist is easily gotten), the giant birds of prey are learning to swoop in for an interception and take-down, showing the man-made birds who's boss.
