Horrifying footage shows a six-ton sex-crazed elephant charging a safari truck and tourists fleeing for their lives.
The 13-foot-tall testosterone-fueled tusker, who was in mating season, was enraged when two vehicles came close to his breeding herd.
The two trucks stop behind each other on a dirt road on the Selati Game Reserve near Hodspruit on the edge of Kruger Great Park in South Africa.
But as an unbelievable video shows, the bull elephant in control of the herd gets furious and charges the vehicle first.
The guide had to jump for his life in the front viewing seat of the bonnet as ivory tusks cut through the bodywork of the safari truck like a knife through butter.
It then lifts the 11-seater vehicle off the ground and pushes it off the road.
The screams of two students could be heard inside the vehicle for the entire 30 seconds of the attack.
Fortunately, as soon as the safari truck is about to roll over, the bull elephant breaks off its attack and stands in front of them.
A guide from another safari truck rushes to help the three girls, who are frozen in fear in their seats, shouting “Get out, get out”.
He orders them to drive to the safety of his truck, placing the wrecked first safari truck between them and the bull elephant.
Bull elephants, when they are ready to breed, increase their testosterone levels by up to sixty times.
They become sexually aggressive and highly violent towards humans, and they secrete a tar-like discharge on the side of their head that warns of their sexual arousal.
In 2018, a 33-year-old top safari ranger Mark Lautenbach was crushed to death by a sexually charged bull elephant that ransacked a game park lodge.
