Kangaroo vs. drone: Angry animal punches camera out of the sky

Kangaroo Punches Drone Out of Sky
A drone lost a fight with a kangaroo when the camera got too close to the boxing animal in New South Wales, Australia.

In a video uploaded on YouTube the drone is seen hovering above some kangaroos in the Hunter Valley.

While the others curiously watch the drone from afar, one of the larger kangaroos hops closer and lashes out, punching it to the ground.
It's not the first time a kangaroo has been filmed putting up its fists. Earlier this year, a hilarious video emerged of two roos battling it out on a residential street in Australia.

The brawl took place on a suburban street on the Central Coast and lasted several minutes with both roos using their strong tails to lean on while they delivered severe kicks to each other.

There's also punching and wrestling involved in the match, although it's not entirely clear who emerges victorious.

The video's soundtrack featured Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, famously used in Apocalypse Now.

It has been watched over five million times, but what most people want to know is who was the victor.

One YouTube user wrote: "BUT!? Who won?! ", to which another replied: "YES! WHO WON? The people want to know! "
