Some chubby tigers in a Chinese wildlife habitat apparently didn't take kindly to their exercise routine, catching and destroying a drone meant to get them moving, UPI reports. Footage released by China Central Television shows one of the Siberian tigers catching up to the drone and knocking it out of the air. The tigers take bites out of the downed drone until it starts smoking and frightens them off. The drone wreckage was later retrieved by a staff member in a secure vehicle. Gizmodo notes the drone appeared to be a DJI Inspire, which is usually "very stable"—at least until it runs into a big ol' tiger paw. (Read more tigers stories.)
