One of the tigers in the video above can be seen leaping up in the air and snatching the drone quadcopter out of the sky.
The other tigers pounce on the drone and start tearing into it like a piece of meat, causing the machine go up in smoke.
Fortunately, staff members of the park went to pick up the remains of the drone in a well-protected vehicle, according to CCTV.
However, Motherboard reported that the Harbin Siberian Tiger Park is known as a slaughter farm that “specializes in contraband like tiger bone, meat, pelts, and a speciality called ‘bone wine’” and has previously landed in hot water for reportedly mistreating the animals.
The video was trending at number 45 on YouTube, gaining more than 56,000 views since it was first posted.
Siberian tigers are endangered due to poaching and habitat loss.
But in 2016, she World Wildlife Fund announced that the wild tiger population rose by 20% since 2010, according to National Public Radio.
