Chimp Downs Aircraft On Purpose, Inspects The Wreckage, Video

The zoo sent the drone to get an up-close look at how the 23-year-old female and 13 other apes live. Tushi wasn’t having it, though, so as soon as the drone was close by, the clearly annoyed chimp went up a tree and whacked the drone twice with a long branch. The second swat proved fatal, and the camera came crashing down.

“We can write the drone off,” the zoo’s spokesman, Bas Lukkenaar, told The Associated Press. “It cost about €2,000. Then again, it doesn’t surprise that Tushi did this. She is very handy with sticks.” Watch Tushi in action in the clip below. —Catherine Garcia http://theweek.com/speedreads/549714/watch-chimpanzee-take-drone-camera–win
