This ... is a nightmare.

Imagine filming a pack of elephants from afar, then suddenly seeing one charge toward your vehicle. That is what happened in this video uploaded to YouTube by JukinVideoDotCom.

Unfortunately, this is by no means the first time an elephant has attacked a nearby car.

Even if elephants are frightening when they make a beeline straight for you, poaching has made humans pretty dangerous to the animals as well. To find out more, check out the IUCN Red List or the World Wildlife Fund website.
