Over the years we’ve seen quite a bit of people being extremely unsatisfied with being photographed by drones. Turns out that the animal realm is no different. But what may end up with some yelling at the human kingdom, can cost you a drone over at Australia.

A videographer over at Hunter Valley, Australia found this out the hard way. The videographer was shooting Red Roo Kangaroos (yes, the ones you think about when thinking about jumping and boxing). Apparently, the big animal was not too happy with the noise and gave the drone a big blow and knocked it out of the sky, as they say.

Let this be a cautionary take to every drone operator to be aware of how being annoying can cost you a drone.

    Idiot! The kangaroo was protecting it’s baby. You should NEVER fly drones low near animals – the animal could get hurt! Do I care if your drone gets destroyed? NO, because if it does, YOU DESERVED IT!

    Good. But let’s get this right. They are GREY Kangaroos. Wrong pat of thecountry, wrng terrain or Reds, and definitely Greys just from the phyical appearance,
    Reds are the larger plains Kangaroos and are of a red russet colour the same as most of our out-back soils.
