Ram Attacks Drone (VIDEO)

A drone pilot paid the price for getting a very close look at a ram on the countryside of New Zealand.

The clip shows a black wooly ram charging at a camera that is buzzing around it. After a cut in the footage, the drone pilot is shown retrieving his downed drone and that's when the ram tries exacting some revenge on the annoying device.

In a video uploaded to YouTube on Monday, user "Buddhanz1" wrote that "I was looking for the angry ram with my fpv quadcopter. I got a bit close & he managed to hit it knocking it into a bush, luckily no harm done. When I went to retrieve it he followed me, I had my hands full so he got me pretty good."

As Motherboard notes, the pilot is pretty much harassing the ram, so it's easy to expect a reaction from the wild animal.

"Suddenly, observation looks more like harassment," Motherboard writes. "Can you blame Angry Ram for, well, being a ram and charging YouTube user Buddhanz1's quadcopter?"

At any rate, it's just another sign of the Dronepocalypse.
