Australia to deploy drones against shark attacks

  • Australia is set to deploy drones on its beaches to prevent shark attacks, the media reported on Thursday. So far this year, there have been 14 attacks, among them one fatal. The trials for the drones will begin next week as part of a strategy by the New South Wales state government, which will install hi-tech drum lines to allow sharks to be hooked, tagged and released farther out to sea.
