Wasn't sure where to put this but I admire the "fuck technology- let's do this medieval style" attitude, so I decided it's worthy of being put in fieldcraft.

I like it....if the drone owner has a vid it just shows a bird destroying his toy.
I need an eagle.

Very cool!

Although as I understand it the time/cost of falconry can be quite high?

This just popped up in our local news down here, but it sounds like it's been in the news for a few months:

It's incredibly time consuming, yes. I do however see limited potential with LEOs. In example there's been talk about more and more prison inmates receiving weapons, tools and "medication" via drone. A single, properly trained eagle in the prison yard could probably handle this.
