In An Arnhem, Netherlands Zoo, It Was Chimpanzees Vs. Drone

I recently wrote about “The Trend of Drone Related Violence,” and now it seems even the animal kingdom is in a bit of an uproar about drones invading their privacy.

The Royal Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem, Netherlands was filming some drone footage of their chimpanzee enclosure last week, and things didn’t exactly go as planned.

One of the apes didn’t feel like being spied on, so he knocked the drone out of the sky with a stick.

And after it was disabled, his pal climbed down to make sure it was completely out of commission.

The drone may have been destroyed, but fortunately – for us – the GoPro camera survived.

What’s interesting is this is not an isolated incident, check out this video of a kangaroo punching a drone out of the sky.

If you’ve read about any other animal vs. drone incidents, please comment, I’d love to hear about them.
