Are you looking for a last-minute Christmas gift for your kangaroo? Probably not, but if you were, you should definitely cross a drone off your list. It goes without saying that kangaroos are not animals you want to mess with. One unfortunate drone operator learned that the hard way while on a mission to film a group of the marsupials in the wine region of Hunter Valley in Australia. When the drone came in for a close-up shot, one member of the pack who wanted its privacy respected, used a very kangaroo-like method of dealing with the device — by punching it to the ground.

The protective Joey damaged the drone, but luckily for us the footage was recovered. We should mention that it could have ended much worse for the drone — remember the viral video of the kangaroo street brawl?
