MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The Alabama Senate has voted to make it a misdemeanor offense to intentionally use a drone to harass someone hunting and fishing legally.

The bill's sponsor, Democratic Sen. Roger Bedford of Russellville, says it is the result of animal rights' groups talking about using drones to watch hunters. He described it as a case of the law catching up with technology.

He guided his bill through the Senate 26-0 Tuesday. It now goes to the House for consideration.
