Chubby Siberian Tigers Successfully Hunt An Electronic Bird Of Prey

Video footage of a habitat for these rare felines in northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province shows them meandering about until they catch sight of a drone with a camera buzzing around.

The rather chubby tigers played cat and mouse with the drone until a 2 or 3-year-old tiger swiped at the camera, a large paw filling its screen before losing signal.

The group proceeded to tear the drone apart, with one literally chewing on the gadget as if it was a bird of prey.

Unlike a bird, the drone started to give off smoke, which scared off the surrounding tigers.

Staff members of the park in a well-protected vehicle then went to pick up the remains of the drone.

This drone chasing is becoming more popular among these well-nourished tigers in the habitat.
