In what seems to becoming an emerging trend, a DJI owner has found out the hard way that a drone isn’t susceptible to animal attacks.

James and Mira Raley from The Honey Badger recently flew their DJI Phantom over some lions only to find the nearby tree a magnet for their flying machine. During the recorded event you can witness the drone as it plummets from the sky straight into the jaws of an approaching lion.

The lion then carries away the teeth ridden DJI for the remaining of the video where it attempts to chew and play with the dilapidated drone. Surprisingly the attached camera survives to tell the story.
