PETA says it's in the market for drones - to spy on hunters.

PETA's president says, "The talk is usually about drones being used as killing machines, but PETA drones will be used to save lives."

"Slob hunters may need to rethink the idea that they can get away with murder, alone out there in the woods with no one watching."

PETA says the drones won't be weaponized.

But they'll be used to film potentially illegal hunting - and the footage would be turned over to police.

They say they plan to start flying before the fall, but need to get a certificate from the FAA.
