Violence against drones: More machine bashing

Last week, I suggested (tongue in cheek) that people abusing robots could one day lead to a robot uprising.
But I neglected to mention all the abuse of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, that is occurring. And it’s not just angry humans knocking drones out of the air – it’s other mammals like sheep and chimpanzees.
Consider these recent articles:
