Travis Higgins posted this YouTube video showing a drone finding a sleeping antelope and then chasing it across a field at a ranch in the Texas panhandle.

When it comes to fight or flight, the animal first tried to run but then decided to fight back.

The antelope stood its ground against the airborne beast and when it flew to antler height, the animal head-butted it to the ground.

Higgins told KGW.com the antelope got away unharmed.

The drone, on the other hand, suffered a broken propeller and learned a valuable lesson; let sleeping antelopes lie.
