A pilot tracking an Eastern grey kangaroo and her joey through Hunter Valley, Australia got a little too close, and perhaps underestimated the roo's speed and vertical leap. Although the pilot tried to back the drone up, it was too late: His shit got wrecked.

The drone pilot obviously managed to save the footage, but the camera itself was broken, the Daily Mail reports.

Based on what we can glean from priceless cultural ambassador Iggy Azalea, this is a traditional Australian way of dealing with the paparazzi.
