Eagle Takes On Drone In Spectacular Australian Video Footage

From fishermen to monkeys, drones face a variety of threats when they're swooping around capturing amazing video.

But when this particular one traveled into the path of a wedge-tailed eagle - or eaglehawk - it didn't stand a chance.

The hawk dives into action, picking up the drone with its claws, knocking it sideways and throwing it off balance.


The drone then falls spectacularly to the ground, where it lay motionless until its owners retrieved it.

Watch slo-mo footage in glorious full 1080p below.
