Kangaroo knocks drone down to the ground

Right now there are few things as popular or controversial as drones of all types. You may recall that that one Colorado town even wanted to issue hunting licenses for citizens to shoot down drones.

In Hunter Valley, Australia, the issue about taking down a drone makes no difference to the marsupial population.

In a video published by the Press Association on YouTube recently, it shows a drone that got a little too close to a mob of kangaroos.


The roos would have none of the annoying sounding flying object as it got closer and closer. One kangaroo eventually went right at the buzzing drone and took it down with with a death blow.

According to the You Tube video caption, the footage was rescued but the drone is now beyond repair.

So now we know. In a scrap between drone and kangaroo, the mighty marsupial wins out.
