Wild animals live isolated in forests since that is precisely the place where they should be. They certainly don’t want humans to come infringing on their privacy and disturb for no particular reason. So, when you fly your drone close to these predators to capture some scintillating close up shots, you should also be ready for them try to snatch, push, punch, bite or attack the gizmo in an aggressive manner.
You should also be on the lookout for them trying to come after you in a belligerent mood. We bring to you some of the most harrowing tussles between predators and small unmanned aircraft systems that have become so much popular among enthusiasts from all over the world.
