A funny video has emerged of a scared woman's reaction to an ostrich chasing and 'attacking' her car.

The footage, filmed during a road trip in the Hai Bar Yotvata nature reserve in Israel earlier this year, shows the large bird approaching Ari and Jess Lawson's car.

As Jess begins to panic, the ostrich starts pecking away at the vehicle, prompting the couple to reverse, but it continues to follow them.

According to the uploader, Jess has a life-long fear of birds so this can't have been a pleasant experience for her!
