(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson says drones are not exempt from a state law that says vessels and other objects are prohibited from coming within 200 feet of killer whales.  In an opinion issued by Ferguson, the A.G. says he believes lawmakers meant to include the word "drones" in the legislation.  The opinion stems from the case of a wildlife photographer who was cited for flying a drone over a pod of orcas.  KING-5 reports the case against the photographer was dropped after he and his attorney argued that the word "drones" was not specifically included in the law.
