The state of Michigan is considering making its drones look "less like seagulls" after losing one recently to an eagle attack. "An Upper Peninsula bald eagle launched an airborne attack on a drone operated by a Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) pilot last month, tearing off a propeller and sending the aircraft to the bottom of Lake Michigan," EGLE said in a press release on Thursday, Aug. 13. The attack happened near Escanaba on July 21.

King had completed about seven minutes of the flight when the satellite reception got spotty.
