LoL !!
Their "Hunter Network" is just Bluetooth and GPS on the scooter and Bird'app. They make it sound like its "Bird Recovery Swat Team" or something of value because its a sales pitch. At best it shows a location to owner and Chargers or Mechanics. ( Bird Chargers and ‘Mechs ARE the “Team”) Presumably, If inclined, a Charger/Mech might pick it up (if not steal it for themselves) and help get it returned if the stolen scooter was just found laying around somewhere.

Btw, Those scooters are just "pre-order" at this time. They are trying to see if there is realistic interest with stupid people actually buying a $400 scooter at insane $1,200 high price.

The Bird Hunter Network is definitely real. Bird lists this as a reason to buy their new scooter.

I think I caught one of the Bird-Hunters repossessing a hacked scooter. Sorry for the grainy unfocused photo.
hahahahahahahahahahaha
you a funny motherfucker man. for real. this shit had me rollin!
Aint nobody out there scooping up scooters like that. What a joke. Notice how the people that made claim to that shit had only one post? Fucking ridiculous.
And to the loss prevention people working for Bird.....youll never stop theft when you leave your shit all over the streets. People will always figure out a way to come up. Wrong or right, thats just how it is. Especially in the hood.
And if you want MY scooter.....Well, all I can say is......come and get it. I dare you.
Shit, in my neighborhood if you hop out a van to snatch up somebodies scooter, youll probably turn around to find your van just got stolen. And turn around again to find 5 guys asking you where you from?. hahaha. Now theres a scare tactic for ya, except what Im saying might really happen.
Cool thing is, this whole conversation has left me with a wonderful idea for the name of my latest creation. Im gonna call it "Ridin' Birdy"

..... and if you dont get the joke you can catch up on your hip hop essentials here:

be good, boys, and keep an eye on your scooters. Bird hunters or not, you cant trust nobody out in them streets!

I dont know the legitimacy of the claim about the hunters but recently I have had an encounter with a bird hunter attempting to repossess 4 scooters ( he got two back pop the cases of the wheels people and look for aerial stixkers)he did mention that when a scooter dies or has its head disconnected it leaves the death ping with location .. I also had encounter with the white van and the cops the van stayed outside a place i park my rv the cops came() and locked me in my spot I took a walk with my bf and dog (2hours) when I came back they were gone .... idk if it was bird or not

And by the way, the only way the scooter is linked to anyone is the Sim card. Remove that and the scooter is yours. Cops can't do shit bird can't do shit . I ride mine in Mesa had a bird watcher follow me to the light rail station and I ditched him . Couldn't track me. Cuz I removed the gps. The danger is a bunch of wanna be cops and idiots , mainly chargers , trying to be captain save a scooter. Don't leave your shit out side. I put mine in a shopping cart when I go to the store and put a after market gps tracker just in incase . Be street smart and no the law. I ordered a sticker fir mine. When it comes I'll post pix I guarantee you'll live the irony.
That’s actually not true. The scooter has a serial number and the control board, the battery, and the motor all have identification numbers that are printed on a sticker and also transmitted over Bluetooth while the scooter is on. It is easy to locate a device that uses Bluetooth down to a few feet once you can detect its signal. That signal broadcasts every few seconds on a m365 or Segway if it is powered on.
