Chased geese with drone

Conservation officers are investigating after video has emerged of a drone operator chasing a flock of Canada geese on Vancouver Island.

The video shot on May 8 shows the drone buzzing the scared geese in Campbell River.

“The Wildlife Act makes it an offence to harass wildlife with a mechanical device,” Conservation Officer Steve Petrovcic told CTV.

The video appears to have been shot in a restricted area for drone flying.

“You have the Campbell River Spit right there, so you have sea planes and ... helicopters coming out," Petrovcic said.

The video ends abruptly after the drone collides with another drone in mid-air, and Conservation officers say they'd like to speak to both operators.
