Enraged elephant lifts safari truck off ground, punctures a tire and terrifies tourists in Hwange National Park.

Tourists in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe became terrified when an enraged elephant, not happy with the intrusion on its turf, charged the safari truck they were in, lifted it off the ground, and turned it sideways.

Passengers screamed in horror as the African bull elephant went on a rampage, and it was all captured on video by a filmmaker going by the moniker Kid_GoPro:

Elephants are generally peaceful, but during the mating season they oftentimes turn very aggressive. Such was the case in this instance with this enraged elephant.

Upon colliding with the safari truck, the elephant punctures a tire; you can hear what sounds like a huge puff of air escaping from the ruined tire.

"The back end is then lifted onto two wheels, its tusk breaking through the metal like butter, narrowly missing a passenger's leg!" the filmmaker wrote in the description. "No one was harmed, but the safari truck sure took a beating!"

Much to the relief of the tourists, the elephant trumpeted its displeasure and returned to its herd without causing further damage.
