DEER TRAIL — The small Colorado town of Deer Trail is considering an ordinance that would create drone-hunting licenses and offer bounties for hunters who shoot down an unmanned aerial vehicle.

Officials admit they have never seen a drone plane on the Eastern Plains, but they want to make a statement that they think using unmanned surveillance planes to spy on people in the United States is wrong. They say the ordinance is mostly symbolic. They also recognize it's against federal law to destroy federal property.

According to KMGH-TV (http://tinyurl.com/lf7zqj6 ), the licenses would cost $25 a year and offer a $100 reward to anyone who provides identifiable pieces of a drone.
