Hawk Attacks A Drone (video)
Flying robot drones seem to be everywhere these days. Some point out the positives of these drones, such as in search-and-rescue situations, helping to learn more about weather and the amazing pictures they can provide from a high vantage point. Others have concerns about surveillance and privacy issues, like unwelcome paparazzi in the sky.
I think I know where this hawk stands on the issue. He obviously is not of fan of the flying contraption invading his airspace. That’s why he decides to take matters into his own hands (or wings and claws as the case may be here). Watch him take out a drone that is filming him in this awesome video taken earlier this month in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
While it took a tumble, the quadcopter drone was not seriously damaged…at least this time. Next time, my money is on the hawk to finish the job.
