Drones Shoot M&Ms To Save Ferrets

...yes, for real. It's not April 1, after all.

The endangered black footed ferret's favorite meal is ground hog.

Ground hogs often carry sylvatic plague - brought here, of course, by Europeans.

Part of the answer: An oral vaccine concealed in peanut butter smeared around M&Ms - a combination ground hogs can't resist.

Fired from drones.

Because drones. (Or rather because drones cover more ground).

I don't think any science fiction writer predicted this one.
