Indian Bison rams Jeep with horns in stunning up-close footage in Karnataka Forest, India

An open-top Jeep suffered an attack from a wild Indian Bison when it drove up on two of the large mammals engaged in an aggressive dual.

As the Jeep approached the two beasts one of them turned on the vehicle and slammed its horns into the front grill causing a loud crashing sound.

Native to South and Southeast Asia, Indian Bison are the largest existing bovine and in 1986 were put on IUCN's Red List as Vulnerable.

Footage shows an Indian Bison attacking a Jeep in very close proximity.

The filmer then captures the two large-horned animals slamming heads together just feet in front of their vehicle.

The images then show the two bison in a standoff blocking the Jeep's progress.
