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.
