Lately, it has come to light that the government, specifically the EPA, is so concerned about cow poop that they are using drones to sniff it out in the skies of the Midwest…Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas.
Many cattle ranchers in the region have recently spotted the drones over their land and are reasonably upset by the practice. To answer a formal letter from U.S. Senator from Nebraska, Mike Johanns, on the subject. the EPA fired of the following message:
“Courts, including the Supreme Court, have found similar types of flights to be legal (for example to take aerial photographs of a chemical manufacturing facility) and EPA would use such flights in appropriate instances to protect people and the environment from violations of the Clean Water Act.”
The EPA is currently trying to hide behind Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution on this matter.
