Protective Mother Kangaroo Punches Camera Drone Out of the Air

Here’s a tip for operating camera drones: stay away from mommy kangaroos. One operator in Australia found out the hard way recently. They were flying their camera close to a group of Eastern gray kangaroos in Hunter Valley when a protective mother decided to deal with the strange intruder by punching the drone out of the air.

The video above shows what happened from the camera’s perspective.

This is not something you want to see while flying your camera drone.

It was a pricey lesson to learn: while the footage was recovered from the downed drone — as evidenced by the video — the drone itself was reportedly damaged beyond repair by the kangaroo.
