Gizmodo brings to attention this video showcasing eagles trained by the Dutch National Police, which intercept and capture drones "much like they were lunch."

Eagles are damn good at intercepting other flying creatures, and the video (in Dutch, sorry) certainly proves that the ability translates well to drones. Though one does wonder what might happen if the eagle attempted to bring down a large drone, with feathers meeting big rotors a rather unpleasant thought.
