A very cross roo

I hope the kangaroo damaged the drone. They should not have taken the drone in so close to harass the kangaroos. Funny how humans like to prod, poke and provoke animals. We ought not.

  1. Good for the 'roo! For basic decency, we humans too often like to pull the wings off flies...

    1. Jac, things you don't ponder too much about when you are a kid but as you get older, I hope we all realise that we shouldn't destroy and disturb animals just because we can. Flies and mosquitoes excepted.

    1. Gosia, while kangaroos can't withstand being shot, they are quite good at self defence.

    1. EC, I just remembered something I heard about Canberra, where local kangaroos have learnt to avoid busy roads and stick to quieter streets.

    2. Mostly true. We do still lose a few as road kill though.

  5. While I totally think this was a wrong and bad thing to do, I really love how curious the kangaroo is and how instead of hopping away, it chooses to investigate, and then attack and VANQUISH this odd foe. :)

    Take that, you flying weird thing! AND THAT!

    1. Snoskred, pity it can't get into a real roo punch up with the drone.

  6. I would have expected the roos to just hop away, but I suppose if that drone kept following, turning on it was a good idea.

    1. River, normally they would jump away from humans, but the roo must have been ruly ruly cross with the intrusion. I expect he was an alpha male.

  7. What a clever roo, would it consider helping to draft legislation to ban drones unless they are registered like any other commercial aeroplane? Our collective governments have been appalling at not controlling what will become an epidemic of these things and I predict that it won't be long before one either causes a major accident, or is involved in some kind of terror plot. I hope that I'm wrong.

    1. Craig, I understand they come under our aircraft legislation and there are some regulations about their operation. I can't say they have been a huge pest here and have been used by environmentalists to obtain evidence and also by animal rights activists to show how bad battery hens are treated.

  10. Now that these drones can be purchased quite cheaply they are going to cause no end of anti social problems here. I think we need some kangaroos to patrol our streets!

  12. Grace, I did not think of that, but it is quite probable.
