Illegal drone use caught at Garden of the Gods Park

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

Some footage was recovered from a drone illegally flying over Garden of the Gods Park Tuesday, and the ending wasn't pretty.

The Rocky Mountain Field Institute posted the video to its Facebook page named, "when drones cry." The footage shows the drone flying over some rocks before coming to its unfortunate demise.

There were no reported injuries to people or wildlife. But the Rocky Mountain Field Institute says "it's easy to see the safety hazards involved with improper use, not to mention the potential damage to the surrounding rocks and other natural resources in the park."

The Rocky Mountain Field Institute urges people to be responsible in the public use of parks and open spaces.
