In Arnham, The Netherlands cameramen were recording a segment for a TV show in the Chimpanzee enclosure at the Royal Burger’s Zoo.

“Tushi’s behavior might look like an act of aggression, but the chimp was probably just curious” —Susana CarvalhoThat’s when one chimp named “Tushi” got a bit too curious and crashed a camera drone that was flying past.

Primatologist experts have expressed that they don’t think the chimps were worried or threatened, but were just curious what the loud machine was.

The drone was still recording when it landed! At the end of the video we get to see closeups of the chimpanzees as they investigate the fallen contraption.
