It used to be said that man, unlike animals, had the knowledge of tools. Well, it was discovered years ago that primates do use tools and this chimp is one smart cookie when it comes to the use of a handy tree branch.

While a film was being shot from a drone about the chimps at the zoo, one of the chimps decided to go all King Kong on the drone and took it out using a tree branch.

It only took two swats for the chimp to take out the drone. While the action could have ruined what they planned to film, the resulting video just became even more compelling because the chimp, after knocking the drone out of the sky, moved in for closer inspection.
