I imagine, if the story's true, this will work not against military or police drones, which are bigger and tougher and can fly faster and higher than eagles, but against consumer-type drones. The latter already get attacked by raptors and even cats. And what's meant by 'illegal' here? Ones flown by folks who didn't pay the tax or or otherwise not approved perhaps.
