By SOF

The drone has become a major part of American warfare. Predator drones have killed high-ranking members of al-Shabaab, the Pakistani Taliban, and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula as part of the War on Terror. But as for all weapon systems… the day is coming when drone will be countered.

African Rogue Elephants Saved With Chili Guns

African Rogue Elephants Saved With Chili Guns

Wildlife Conflict Management – Chirundu Elephant programme (Zimbabwe)

By Founder: Aaron Young

Roughly 6 weeks ago I got confirmation of a PAC (problem animal control) ruling on an elephant in Chirundu (Zimbabwe). This means imminent destruction, or simply put he would be shot because he was pushing the locals around.  I wanted to re-locate him, but when we assessed this it was found to be a pointless exercise. Elephants will trek forever to find their home and if at best he decided to accept his new home, then he would pull into the nearest source of easy & sweet food and dig in. So move him to be shot elsewhere wasn’t a smart move. So it was decided to try a behavior modification programme that uses Chilli in different forms. Our form was firing a projectile (filled with Chilli oil) with a homemade “Gun” from as close range as possible.

In whatever capacity, the Mosquito proved to be immensely successful – for a ‘wooden’ plane.
