When zookeepers flew a drone too close to a chimpanzee in Arnhem's Dutch Burgers' Zoo in the Netherlands, the little craft suffered an untimely demise: a chimp named Tushi swung a stick at it that struck home. After it plummeted to earth, another chimp can be seen devouring, er, inspecting the downed craft.

Zoo spokesman Bas Lukkenaar told The Associated Press that "we can write the drone off. It cost about 2,000 euros [$2,100]. Then again, it doesn't surprise that Tushi did this. She is very handy with sticks."
