When I was at High School (many decades ago!!) I had an anthology of Australian Short stories.
One I have always remembered concerned the shooting and killing of an airborne WTE by a yobbo in a light aircraft.  The eagle’s mate witnessed this murder and never forgot.  The next time he spotted the aircraft aloft he stooped up-on it from a great height and ripped one of the wings off thus gaining what I thought was an honourable revenge!
something for drone operators to consider!!

I don’t know whether people will be able to open this because it seems to be locked through my subscription.  But it is worth trying.  It is a great story in the Wall St Journal about WTEs attacking drones used for mapping.
