Upset Elephant Charges at Tour Group

Occurred on June 6, 2022 / Kwai Concession, Botswana

Info from Licensor: "We were out on safari watching lions when we heard an elephant trumpeting close by. Our guide asked if we wanted to go see what was happening, and we said “absolutely!” We drove around the corner and saw an elephant destroying a tree. He was trumpeting and charging in all directions. The elephant was in musth, which means they have extremely high testosterone levels. We weren’t sure why he was acting out. There was another male elephant nearby watching the whole thing, so we were thinking maybe the trumpeting elephant was “showing off” to the other one. Suddenly the angry elephant turned and charged right at us! Our guide pulled us away just in time."
