VIDEO: Magpie attacks drone over Aussie over golf course


SHARE THIS STORY

Don't piss off a magpie, apparently. Or at least don't fly a drone in their space, or it's going to the ground.

Sean Mulcahy was flying his drone over Mona Vale Golf Club in Australia when the magpie, who was probably protecting its nest during mating season, took to the defense. First, the bird grazes the drone, which is about 30 feet in the air, from behind. Then, as Mulachy turns the camera around, the magpie finishes the job, sending the drone to the ground.

The bird was fine, but the drone suffered about $600 of damage.



And now we have a new regular season at Golf News Net, When Birds Attack Drones, to go alongside our other series, When Dumb People Drive on Golf Courses.
