A short history of animals trying to eat GoPro cameras

5
Yogi is sick of pic-a-nic baskets, apparently. This hungry grizzly was caught taking a bite of a GoPro video camera.

Nature photographers have it rough — waiting for hours in the wilderness, hoping to catch clear footage of a specific animal. Amatuers and professionals alike have taken to leaving affordable, wide-angle HD GoPros in the field instead of themselves, hoping that the rugged cameras can survive anything — even being mistaken for lunch.

An amazing video of a grizzly bear munching on GoPro went viral earlier this week, so we dug into the depths of the Internet to find the best animal vs. GoPro moments. (Warning to those with weak stomachs, these videos offer a view that is usually reserved for vereranary dentists and low-food-chain critters.)

Excellent! Gopro should have clear instructions not to touch the equipment right after eating a sandwitch, unless of course you're researching veterinary dentistry!

You missed this one and it's well worth a look.. a fox in a Dutch nature reserve takes off with the GoPro Hero 3 camera that the film makers had hidden in a carcass. For those who wonder about the cable seen in the footage, that's part of a custom made battery pack.
