Camera-Shy Chimpanzee Does Not React Well To Being Filmed By A Drone
Apr 16, 2015
This little chimp lashed out at the passing drone, destroying it, but he didn't manage to get rid of the video evidence. The resulting footage included some up-close-and-personal footage of the other simian residents, who seemed quite intrigued by the contraption, so at least all wasn't lost.
As it turns out, some animals are really not interested in having their pictures taken. Zookeepers at the Royal Burgers' Zoo in the Netherlands found this out the hard way, when one of their resident chimpanzees had a rather strong reaction to their drone. They were using the drone to try and capture some candid footage of the chimps.
