Chimpanzee swats down drone filming at Netherlands zoo

AMSTERDAM: A chimpanzee has knocked the flying drone by a stick which entered in his compound to record their actives for a TV programme.

The drone was sent into the skies above the chimpanzee enclosure at Royal Burgers’ Zoo, in Arnhem, the Netherlands, to take footage for a TV programme.

The animal is seen perched on a branch as the drone approaches. It then lashes out with the stick and scores a direct hit.

The aircraft falls to the ground and the chimpanzee wanders over for a closer look.

Footage from the drone shows the chimp picking up the craft and turning it around in its hands.
