Red-Tailed Hawk Attacks Quadcopter

A red-tailed hawk attacks and takes out a drone in this video filmed by the drone owner. The quadcopter was being flown at Magazine Beach Park in Cambridge.

Schmidt says, "As soon as he flew at me, I throttled down the props to try to minimize any harm to the bird."

Hopefully, large birds of prey going after drones will be a rare occurrence. We don't want them to get injured. Take a look:
