Colorado town votes down drone-hunting licenses

DEER TRAIL, Colo. (AP) - A small town in Colorado won't be issuing hunting licenses to shoot down drones.

Voters in Deer Trail overwhelmingly have defeated a proposal that would have authorized the rural community to issue drone-hunting permits.

Town officials say 73 percent of the 188 votes cast were against the measure.

Federal aviation authorities have warned it's a crime to shoot at drones, but backers said the measure was a tongue-in-cheek challenge to surveillance programs.
