Illegal cyber-hunting rig spied

Call in the shots

Security for virtualized datacentres

A homemade shotgun-and-webcam combo designed to be fired remotely over the internet has been discovered next to a wild boar feeding area in Georgia.

This illegal setup was stumbled upon last year by a utility contractor, who snapped a pic and sent it to the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division. The US Office of Homeland Security was subsequently informed, the Augusta Chronicle reports.

The shotguns and remote-control attachments were nowhere to be found by the time officers arrived, although an investigation was opened by the Wildlife Resources Division who questioned the land owner, Jay Williams.

Williams was said to have acknowledged the existence of the device, stating it was in development stages and hadn't yet been used to shoot any animals. The area is a known habitat of wild pigs.

Such so-called 'cyber-hunting' apparatus is illegal in 25 states, Georgia included, but no charges were filed, and the property has now been sold on. The kit has not been seen since. ®
