Goose knocks drone out of the sky at Netherlands historical site

A man using a camera drone to take aerial footage of an old building in the Netherlands recorded a moment a territorial goose knocked his device out of the sky.

Michiel Rote posted a video to YouTube showing the footage his DJI Phantom 3 drone recorded at the site of a historical building in the Netherlands.

The footage shows the drone slowly descending while filming the building, and a flock of nile geese flying from the top of the building when the drone gets close.

One of the geese heads straight for the drone and swats it out of the sky.

“Never thought these kind of birds would or could attack my drone. Luckily both parties were (almost) unharmed! I lost a piece of my prop….the goose was just fine!” Rote wrote in the video’s description.
