LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Drone owners in the Netherlands now have to be on the lookout for eagles. Yep, eagles. 

The Dutch National Police are training eagles to hunt the unmanned devices.

The birds swoop in and quickly grab the drones.

The company that came up with the idea calls them a "low tech solution for a high tech problem."

By the way, the U.S. deals with problematic drones by using lasers, missiles, and signal jamming.
