Rhino rams parked car on safari in Namibia

Updated: 

A rhino was caught on camera charging straight into the side of a truck that was packed with tourists on safari in Namibia.

The animal took an interest in the white Toyota while it was parked on a section of track, no doubt to give those inside a clearer view of the wildlife.

However, they got a much closer view than they had anticipated – as the rhino became angry with the stationary vehicle. Breaking into a run, the animal rams full force into the side of the truck, smashing into it with its horn.

Alexandra Poier, who captured the footage while in the Etosha National Park, told the Daily Mail: "I think the rhino saw a threat and that is why he attacked. To be honest I was quite scared because it could have been our car.

"It happened very quickly and suddenly. After, he went to the side of our car and we left quickly. The tour guide said this was a rare event."
