ALKMAAR, Netherlands, May 28 (UPI) -- A Netherlands public broadcaster shared a clip of its video drone being smacked out of the sky by an aggressive goose.

RTV Noord-Holland, which shared the clip on YouTube, said the Egyptian goose apparently saw the drone as a rival when it was flying over the Oudorperpolder area of Alkmaar. The bird came in low to knock the device out of the sky.


The drone did not appear to be seriously damaged and was able to make a relatively smooth landing.
