VIDEO: Drones Are for Animals
The push for legal and governmental sanction of the commercial use of drones is reaching a fever pitch — but is all the barking worth the bite?
The debate around unmanned aerial vehicles in the real estate industry has centered on how to protect home owners’ privacy and whether the flying apparatus pose safety concerns in neighborhoods. But here’s another thing to take into consideration: It could end up being your dog’s favorite chew toy.
Below, Internet news aggregator Digg compiled a series of drone videos capturing attacks by dogs, cats, birds, monkeys, cheetahs, et. al., while the drones are flying through the air. As the site points out, “there is something about animals and drones that just doesn’t mix.”
Though the National Association of REALTORS® has offered its support for drone usage in real estate, it has advised its members not to use them until the Federal Aviation Authority has released regulations around their commercial use. NAR has cited the need to carefully consider safety protocols related to drones in real estate. Perhaps staying out of the doghouse should be chief among them.
