Picture life as a hawk. Just flying around, hunting prey, doing hawk stuff... when all of a sudden this weird new shiny animal starts flying around everywhere. What do you do? You kill it of course. Because you're a hawk, and you're not to be messed with.
This guy was flying his drone, when a hawk downed it and was clawing at it.
He tries to scare it off by being a big tough guy, but the hawk isn’t fazed at all.
In a fight between a hawk and a drone-owner, I’ll take the hawk every time.
The complete lack of reaction by the hawk is the best.
In fact, the hawk even gets closer to the guy like, “DO SOMETHING THEN!”
(The man, proving he’s not TOTALLY unreasonable, does nothing.)
You can't help but be on the hawk's side here. Further, it's not the first time this sort of thing has happened. Nor is it even the tenth.
These attacks, as you’ll see in the glorious videos to follow, this sort of thing is pretty common in the skies.
I mean, hawks are airborne predators, so you have to respect their space.
Some people were upset at the guy for threatening the hawk.
But don’t worry, the hawk doesn’t speak English, so it’s unlikely its feelings were hurt.
At the very least, he should've seen this coming.
Since apparently hawks and drones have had quite a history in a brief period of time…
