These guys got a little too close to the wildlife and got a lesson in how strong an elephant is. Watch as this angry elephant absolutely manhandles their truck.
Elephants are listed as dangerous game for a good reason, as these two guys in the video taken near Kruger Park in South Africa found out. They got a little too close to a female elephant and her herd, and she let them know that she didn’t appreciate their presence.
Watch as this angry elephant absolutely manhandles their truck!
Check out the holes her tusks made in the side of the truck! She picked up that vehicle and moved it sideways like it was just a toy.
Luckily, everything turned out okay and everyone, including the elephant, walked away from the encounter unharmed. Hopefully, they learned their lesson and will be a little more careful next time.
People often forget that even though they are visiting a nature preserve, the animals there are still wild and can be quite dangerous.
If you ever get the opportunity to visit Kruger National Park in South Africa, I’m sure you will see all sorts of tourists acting like idiots in the presence of some potentially very dangerous wild animals.
Things can be especially interesting when dealing with extremely large animals, like elephants and rhino.
Elephants are incredibly intelligent animals and are capable of performing really cool feats, but that doesn’t mean that they are pets. As always, give all animals a wide berth and if they appear to be agitated by your presence, leave the area immediately.
