Elephants are usually seen as docile animals – until they’re provoked. Elephants charge as a way of protecting themselves, their homes, and their families.

In this video, shared by South Africa Live, a group of tourists are on a safari drive when an elephant charges towards the vehicle and damages the driver’s side, reports Polokwane Review.

Tourists can be heard screaming and towards the end of the video, you can see the damage caused.

It is unclear as to where the video took place or what happened after, and if injuries were incurred.

The video has since been shared over 300 times and has gained over 24,000 views on Facebook.
