Watch These Massive Siberian Tigers Feast on a Drone After Ripping It out of the Sky (VIDEO)

If you’ve ever wondered why a group of tigers is called an “ambush,” the video below pretty much explains the nomenclature. The clip was captured by China Central Television (CCTV) while shooting aerial footage of captive Siberian tigers in the snow, when all of a sudden one of the massive beasts leapt up and yanked their drone out of the sky.

What follows appears to be a short feast until the tigers decide that the drone’s carbon fiber frame doesn't suit their palates. The moral of this story, to paraphrase Madonna, is that it’s better to live one year as a tiger than a hundred as a drone.
