In a video posted by RTV NH, a media production company in Holland, a goose appears to smash into a drone (potentially on purpose). Thankfully, both the drone and the goose seemingly end the encounter unscathed.
In case you were wondering, the bird is an Egyptian Goose, which is known for being territorial. The drone was capturing images of Oudorperpolder, in the city of Alkmaar, according to The Daily Mail.
Unfortunately for drones and fowl alike, this could be an increasingly common occurrence, especially as the drone industry is expected to continue booming in coming years. Business Insider report commercial and civilian drone sales will grow at 19% between 2015 and 2020, while military models will see 5% growth.
The drone industry overall is expected to be worth over $8.4 billion by 2019, CNBC reports, citing ABI Research estimates.
