I agree it is nasty looking, but what is the proper way to dispose of blood from a slaughter house? I ask because I do not know. It is organic material so I assumed it was OK with the EPA for it to be disposed of in the environment. We toss animal waste from food in the trash which then goes into the landfill. How is this different?

EDIT: I also laughed when they called him a "drone pilot". My first thought was "Why is the military flying drones over civilian areas?" Then I read the article and thought "Why are they calling a guy with a camera taped to a RC plane a drone pilot?"

good point about wondering how the proper way to dispose of this. seems like slaughter houses could sell their animal waste to fertilizer companies or something.

Subtle media sensationalism at it's finest! They love to suck you in with keywords. You see the word "drone", and you'll read the article. I ran into my office today because it was raining. If a news personality saw me, the headline probably would have been "Man daringly evades saturation!"
