Kangaroo downs drone with leaping punch

A drone has once again come out second best in a tussle with the animal kingdom.

A Press Association  video on YouTube shows a drone flying near a group of kangaroos in Hunter Valley, Australia. One kangaroo, unimpressed by the flying intruder, leaps up and punches the drone, which plunges to the ground.

While the footage of the bruising encounter was rescued, the video’s description states that the drone was beyond repair.

This is not the first time that an animal has been caught on camera knocking a drone out of the air. Earlier this year a large hawk took out a Quadcopter drone flying above Magazine Beach Park in Cambridge, Mass.
