Video: Watch a Chimp Take Down a Camera Drone

Zookeepers at Burgers' Zoo in the Netherlands were expecting to catch candid footage of chimpanzees when they sent a camera-mounted drone into the primate's habitat. The ever-curious chimpanzees reminded us how smart they really are when they armed themselves with sticks and perched in wait of the buzzing interloper. As the drone made a close pass, a chimpanzee swatted it out of the sky with a stick and moved in closer to investigate.

While the drone itself was completely destroyed, the camera escaped the confrontation unscathed, reports the New York Daily News.
