[Tweeters] Unleashed Drones

Doug Parrot and I were walking out on the Edmond’s pier a few days ago, having a nice chat and looking for birds.
When we reached the South end, we heard a sound, looked up and saw a drone flying about 15 feet above us. It went past the end of the pier, dropped and turned to face us-
20-25 feet in front of us and and about 5 feet higher than our heads.
I felt-well I am not sure what-it was a novel experience-but I did not like it-at all!!

I strongly waved for it- by owner- to leave. It didn’t.
I could not locate the owner, but he was no where nearby.
Really obnoxious, I believe illegal and dangerous.
Have any of you had this experience?
I like dogs, but not unleashed, in a posted area. At least I can talk to the owner.

Unleashed Drones, remotely piloted by someone who is not visible, physically intrusive and potentially dangerous are a ten fold greater annoyance. I really hope this is not new trend.
But, I drone on.....
Thank you,
Dan Reiff
