It seems that sometimes nature does fight back!
The latest news from the Kruger National Park is that a a bull elephant has charged a car, flipping it over in the process. A couple was inside, but neither of them is badly hurt. The man suffered a minor knee injury, but was attended to by a Kruger Park doctor on the scene.
The event occurred between Berg-en-Dal and Crocodile Bridge camps on the S25 road. Communications officer for the park, Lerato Mathale, has said that this kind of conflict is an extremely rare occurrence, and could be due to a previous injury the bull may have sustained. The park staff are looking for him to check if he does indeed have an injury.
