(Newser) – If you were planning on bringing a drone to any of the national parks in the US, think again: The National Park Service is banning them from all sites under its jurisdiction. Officials say it's all about safety and noise complaints, and making sure that animals don't get disturbed. "We are prohibiting their use until we can determine the most appropriate policy," say the parks chief.
