A chimpanzee knocked a drone out of the sky with a long stick while it was flying around an ape enclosure in a zoo in the Netherlands.
Footage shot by a go-pro camera attached to the drone captured the moment a chimpanzee reached out from a tree with a large stick and hit the drone in mid-air.
It then fell to the ground, where a group of curious chimpanzees are filmed quickly gathering to examine the object.
The drone, which was intended to be used to film the animals in their natural habitat for a Dutch television show, was destroyed.
