    From a young age, eagles are taught by French military officers to take down remote-controlled drones if they trespass into restricted airspace.

    The training begins as the little eaglets hatch: the eggs are placed on top of the drones to prepare the birds. From the moment they are born they are trained to treat drones as prey. And for each successful attack, the eagles are rewarded with a piece of meat.
