Old Wine In New Skins

A new security threat has emerged at high society weddings: drones.  

These drones could have paparazzi cameras intruding on the privacy of the gathering, or could either have weapons or be used to provide guidance to remote guided weapons.

One of the new solutions to this security threat, however, is decidedly old school.  An anti-drone falconer.

Historically, a falconer hunted birds with a trained bird of prey called a falcon who attacked the target birds out of the air and either returned them to the falconer or allowed the falconer to retrieve the prey from the ground.  Now, the falcon is trained to take out drones rather than birds, to achieve a similar result.
