A chimpanzee was recently filmed knocking a drone out of the sky, and this footage will surely be referenced by future generations as the moment the great ape uprising began.
The drone -- on a mission to capture footage for a Dutch reality TV show -- was flying over a chimpanzee enclosure at Royal Burgers' Zoo in the Netherlands when the takedown occurred Friday (April 10).
As the craft hovers near a tree, a chimp in the branches channels its inner Caesar and swats the foreign object out of the sky with a stick. Seriously, this chimp lands a more direct hit on the moving target than most humans get on a stationary piñata.
"Once the drone arrived at the chimpanzee quarters the intelligent primates immediately discovered the spying little plane and right away armed themselves with long sticks against this inquisitive electronic intruder," the zoo wrote in the video's description, which was translated from Dutch.
Not only that, but the zoo says the primate hid the stick behind her back and waited until the drone was close enough to brandish her weapon and launch the attack.
Turns out chimps might be just as suspicious of drone surveillance as humans are.
