Angry elephant squashes car on rampage in Thailand

A wild elephant caused panic when it rammed a car in the Khao Yai National Park near Bangkok, Thailand.

Park chief Kanchit Srinoppawan said the aggressive behaviour was the result of the mating season.



A passenger inside one car films the moment the elephant gets a little too close for comfort, before it then goes on to ram the vehicle behind them, walking over, and completely squashing, the bonnet, reports the Mirror.

According to the BBC, the weekend attack was followed by another on a shop and restaurant in the park on Monday.

Officials said it was not clear whether it was the same elephant involved in both incidents.

Nobody was injured in either of the incidents.

Back in January 2014, a British woman was admitted to hospital after a male elephant flipped her car in an attack during a self-drive safari tour in the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

According to the Daily Telegraph, William Mabasa, general manager at Kruger National Park, said one of the elephant's tusks stabbed British teacher Sarah Brooks in the thigh.

Ms Brooks, from Lincolnshire, was travelling with a South African man, thought to be her partner, who suffered less serious injuries.
