VIDEO: Goose attacks, downs drone flying over golf course


Drones are all the rage these days, especially in golf-course photography (at least in the areas where they're legally allowed to fly, which is a dwindling number). These small, pilotless, radio-controlled devices can capture golf-course views you used to need a chopper to get -- or couldn't get at all.

These drones don't come without risks, however. A drone pilot was flying his DJI Phantom Vision 2 over a golf course, having some fun with his buddies. At one point in the round, however, a pair of geese notice the drone taking off from the ground. One decides to attack, flying right into it and taking it down (starting at the 2:14 mark in the video).
