Woman stabbed and injured when elephant flips her car
A safari trip turned into a close encounter with the wild when an elephant attacked a vehicle in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
Sarah Brooks was stabbed in the leg by the animal’s tusk according to the BBC. Brooks was on the safari with a partner who escaped with only minor injuries.
The couple was driving behind the elephant when it suddenly turned around, pushed the car and then stepped on it — even flipping it over.
A report by the BBC says the elephant was later killed because park officials could not understand the animal’s behavior. Later on it was discovered the elephant was going through a period of time in which male elephant’s testosterone levels are heightened and they become more aggressive.
