SPRINGFIELD — An Illinois House committee endorsed a proposal Monday to criminalize the use of drones to interfere with someone’s hunting and fishing.

State Rep. Adam Brown, R-Champaign, proposed an addition to an Illinois criminal law that prohibits interference with hunting and fishing.

Brown’s addition would make it a misdemeanor to use of a drone to interfere with a hunter or fisherman who is lawfully taking wildlife or aquatic life. The proposal defines “drone” as any aerial vehicle that does not carry a human operator.

Brown said he proposed the measure when he read that one animal rights group used a drone over hunters in Pennsylvania and another announced plans to buy drones “to stalk hunters” nationally.
