On one day every single year, male elephants go through a heightened state of sexual tension, which is called musth. And as a result of musth, elephants become extra aggressive and do things that they wouldn't normally do. Like, oh we don't know, FLIP CARS.
Unfortunately, the car that you see in the video above came across an elephant going through musth in Kruger National Park in South Africa recently. And it did not go well. The elephant flipped the car three times when he saw it, pushed it back more than 100 feet, and put one of his tusks through a passenger's leg. It was a pretty wild scene.
Fortunately, the passenger is going to be OK. But things didn't end well for the elephant. Because of the aggressive attack, it was put down shortly after it took place. How sad is that?
