Don't fuck with people with guns, dumbass.

Animal rights group says citizens shot down drone
A remote-controlled aircraft owned by an animal rights group was reportedly shot down near Broxton Bridge Plantation Sunday.
Steve Hindi, president of SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness), said his group was preparing to launch its Mikrokopter drone to video what he called a live pigeon shoot on Sunday when law enforcement officers and an attorney claiming to represent the privately-owned plantation near Ehrhardt tried to stop the aircraft from flying.
"It didn't work; what SHARK was doing was perfectly legal," Hindi said in a news release. "Once they knew nothing was going to stop us, the shooting stopped and the cars lined up to leave."
He said the animal rights group decided to send the drone up anyway.
"Seconds after it hit the air, numerous shots rang out," Hindi said in the release. "As an act of revenge for us shutting down the pigeon slaughter, they had shot down our copter."
He claimed the shooters were "in tree cover" and "fled the scene on small motorized vehicles."
"It is important to note how dangerous this was, as they were shooting toward and into a well-travelled highway," Hindi stated in the release. He said someone from SHARK called the Colleton County Sheriff's Department, which took a report of the incident.
The Colleton County Sheriff's Department filed a malicious damage to property incident report.
According to the report, Hindi told the responding deputy the group's remote-controlled aircraft "was hovering over U.S. 601 when he heard a shot come from the wood line. The shot sounded to him that it was of small caliber."
The incident report went on to state that "once shot, the helicopter lost lift and crash landed on the roadway of U.S. 601."
The deputy noted in the report that he was unable to speak to anyone at Broxton Bridge Plantation following the incident.
Hindi estimated damage to the drone at around $200 to $300.
Hindi said he will seek charges against those who shot down the drone.
"This was SHARK's first encounter with the Broxton Bridge Plantation, but it will certainly not be the last," Hindi said in the release. "We are already making plans for a considerably upscaled action in 2013."

And here's the video (courtesy of Joel) of the motherfuckers whining about their lack of judgement.
No shit, it's titled "Aerial Drone Shot Down at Killing Club".  Killing club, huh? If I didn't know better, I would think he was talking about an abortion clinic.


Seriously, what the fuck did they expect? The hunters were out there engaging in a legal activity which involved shooting at flying objects and this dipshit launches a fucking drone to try and spoil their day?
Fucking idiots.
This took place in Orangeburg, SC in case you were wondering.

Saw this in the local SC news. My question is was it found in one piece or pieces? If the it crashed on the road in one pace, then this is a media stunt. Sometimes you gotta crash it to make a payment.

Checked out the SHARK site. Ted Nugent is considered a serial animal killer by these folks. Liberalism is truly a mental illness.

What was the purpose of the drone, did it have a camera on it or something? These people really need to find a hobby...

Here's the video from SHARK.....I couldn't stop laughing at how upset they were over the big kids breaking their toy.

Her in OH it is agaist the law to interfer with hunters. Not to be picky, but the guy accusing the hunters of shooting his toy should becareful he is showing the world he is guilty of interfering with the hunters. Yes you hear gun shots and then you see his toy crash that does not prove they shot it.

Only 1 propeller was damaged? If you hit it with Buck & Ball or a Marlin Goose Gun, Drone-thingy would be toast.
