The only thing more fun than a drone-borne camera is a drone-borne camera getting attacked by an animal.
This eastern gray kangaroo was just hopping along one day when a drone was sent to observe Australia's Hunter Valley. When the camera-mounted flyer got too close, the roo decided to engage in its patented two-paw attack. The drone was sent flying in the wrong direction...down.
This hungry Florida gator tried to leap toward a drone flying above a Naples swamp, but alas, he'd had too many donuts. Or fish. Or other gators. We'd rather not think about that too hard. Point is: The drone got away...this time.
