Fed-up antelope gets revenge on nosy drone

An antelope got some revenge after a drone pilot began following the animal across a ranch in the Texas panhandle.

In the YouTube video shot in Clarendon, Texas, the drone happens across the pronghorn antelope resting in a field when the animal catches sight of the flying drone. The spooked antelope initially tries to run away, but after the drone keeps up, the perturbed beast stands its ground and faces off with the flying menace.

Finally, the antelope decides he has had enough and charges the drone as it hovers right at antler-height, sending the device spiraling to the ground.

The outdoorsman who shot the video of the close encounter told News 8 the antelope ran away unharmed and the drone suffered a broken prop but has since been repaired.

And, hopefully, a valuable lesson was learned about letting a sleeping antelope lie.
