Predator drone helps convict North Dakota farmer in first case of its kind
Quote:Predator drone helps convict North Dakota farmer in first case of its kind

A North Dakota farmer convicted of terrorizing law officers two years ago is the first American to be sentenced to prison with the help of a Predator drone, Forbes reported.

Rodney Brossart, who was accused at the time of stealing six cows from a neighbor, was arrested after a summer-long standoff in 2011. Authorities say Brossart family members refused to allow deputies on their farmstead and didn't show up for court hearings.

The case drew widespread attention because police used a military-style unmanned drone to conduct surveillance on the Brossart farm. Brossart was found not guilty of stealing the cows and got six months in prison over the police standoff, Forbes reported.

Brossart's attorney asked a judge to drop the charges because he said the drone use was done without a warrant. The judge, however, rejected the motion, the report said.

So, the obvious answer is to use horse camo netting over any cow you may steal?

Cattle rustling still happens!?

Yes, it does, except this isn't a case of direct cattle rustling, as the man involved didn't directly steal them, just refused to turn back over to their rightful owners after they wandered onto his property.
