The "boom" of unmanned drones with which to film scenes from the top and up close, is likely to create problems to the animals in the savanna and to those who use them, given that Kenya is illegal. To use the drones, not even in protected areas, it wants specific permits issued in advance by the competent authorities.
This morning a tourist was arrested while used a drone to Pipeline in Tsavo East to resume some lions that eat their prey.
Bothered and bewildered by the presence of the drone hovering above their heads, the cats have left the meal and stressed ran away quickly to the amazement and indignation of the other tourists present that, as a result, were not allowed to admire and photograph the scene.
The tourist, owner of the drone, is still being interrogated by the Kenya Police.
Recall that the law of Kenya strictly prohibits the use of drones for national security. Anyone will be surprised to use a drone to amateur footage risk the seizure of the drone and the arrest.
