Elephant Gets Road Rage

Elephant gets (trunk) road rage and flips car – caught on camera


An amazing sequence of photographs captured a bull elephant flipping over a car like a toy in the Pilansberg Game Reserve in South Africa.

The elephant v car bout began when Irishman John Somers, on holiday celebrating his 66th birthday and driving through the park with a friend, decided to try and overtake a huge and horny bull elephant.

Bad mistake.

The elephant, called Amarula, at first rubbed itself up against the car, perhaps mistaking it for a female mate.


But then the beast, pumped full of hormones, became aggressive and flipped the car on its roof as the terrified occupants clung on for dear life inside.

This brush with death wasn’t on the pair’s itinerary, but luckily they suffered only minor cuts and bruises from the incident.
The snaps were taken by photographer Riaan van Wyk, who was watching from a safe distance!
