Well it is made by Almaz Antey, they have a reputation for shooting aircraft out of the sky, they make the Buk, that brought down MH17.

If you can track down that frequency and broadcast a strong signal on it that overrules the communication between the drone and the controller, the drone effectively becomes useless.
Of course this doesn't go for every drone, but it does for the majority of them. Specially cheap drones intended for home customers.

This is the only way to stop this.
I do not see really idiots/kids/morons flying them - I see at present covert environment activists behind all these drone activities and, crucially, nobody got caught yet.

There are dozens of videos of eagles and similar birds attacking drones mid-flight on YouTube, and when they're not hunting drones they could help control or or scare away the other birds that are attracted to the open grassy spaces an airport provides.
