Watch An Eagle Take Out A Drone In Midair

We may not have enough drone regulations in place here in the U.S., but it appears air traffic over Australia is now being regulated by animal kingdom royalty.

This brief but eventful video was shot by Melbourne Aerial Video, who wants to assure everyone that the eagle wasn’t harmed in the making of this video:

"Eagle was fine — she was massive, and used talon's to 'punch' the drone out of the sky. Hung around overhead so I got a really good look," the video's description states. "Eagle's health was my main concern also."

And they have these wise words for future drone pilots:

"Do not fly drones near birds of prey, they clearly attack seeing you as a threat or the right sized dinner. This will cost you money and potentially harm to the bird. This one was fine ... the drone needed some attention before it could fly again."
