Elephants are known to be extremely intelligent and friendly creatures with hearts of gold. In fact, a research carried out last year concluded that the mighty beasts find humans cute the way humans think puppies are!
However, that’s not the case always. The same way we are intolerant towards strangers trespassing out territory, elephants are too. And probably that’s the reason why an elephant went berserk on seeing some tourists get to close.
Some tourists from Europe and Japan were on a jungle safari clicking pictures and videos of the wild animals from an open sight-seeing bus.
During their journey, they came across a herd of African elephants and continued to capture the moment. Much to their shock, the smiles turned into screams when one of the elephants lost it’s cool and attacked the vehicle.
In the video which has been posted on Facebook, we can clearly see the elephant charging towards the tourists and causing destruction. It goes on to put its head inside the vehicle and smash the roof and the passenger seats. The driver somehow managed to slide the car aside and prevented it from getting toppled.
The people inside the car did not get an opportunity to turn off their cameras which caught the chilling incident.
Thankfully, nobody was hurt in the process as the animal calmed down after a few seconds of madness. The bus found itself stuck in the bush as the animal went away.
