Internet controlled shotguns discovered in Georgia

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Georgia authorities are investigating the discovery of 6 loaded shotguns aimed at a food plot that were rigged to be fired through a network of Web-controlled cameras.

The Augusta Chronicle reported the guns were discovered last fall on Georgia Power Company right of way in rural south Georgia. The set up was discovered by a utility contractor and it was reported to the U.S. Office of Homeland Security.

The newspaper reported that a bulletin circulated by the Office of Homeland Security said it appeared that the rig was only intended for illegal hunting in an area known to be infested with wild hogs.

The newspaper reported that by the time officers arrived to investigate the shotgun setup had been removed.
