in France, four eggs “were placed before birth on top of drones while still inside the eggshell and, after hatching, (were kept) there during their early feeding period,” Reuters reported in November.

The eagles were named after characters in The Three Musketeers, and by February proved capable of intercepting drones in lightning-fast horizontal chases.

“Soon they will be casting off from peaks in the nearby Pyrenees Mountains,” AFP reported.

The military has already ordered a second brood of eagles, according to AFP.
