Scary close encounter as elephant rolls bakkie, breaks part of tusk

2013-11-06 - Maputo, Mozambique

A man, who wants to remain anonymous, sustained light injuries when the elephant cow attacked his large 4x4 bakkie. He was alone in the bakkie when he visited the reserve on October 16.

In an attempt to frighten them off, the panicky man decided to give the elephants an earful by pressing the vehicles hooter.
