Peregrine falcons hunt like guided missiles and their method could be replicated to take out rogue drones in airports or prisons, a study found.

The findings could help design small, visually guided drones that can take down other similar flying gadgets, researchers claim.

This could help tackle the growing problem of drones flying drugs and mobile phones into jails, and flying in the vicinity of airports, they suggest.
