I think it’s about time that the South African wildlife authorities change the Big Five to the Big Six. It’s been way too long that elephants, lions etc have held onto the title and it’s time to add a sixth animal…the dumbass tourist. Youtube is filled with videos of the dumbass tourist and yesterday another sighting was reported at the Kruger National Park. The video of an elephant overturning a blue Golf will surely go viral, not only because the dumbass tourists decided to drive right next to the big male elephant, but also because of the excellent Afrikaans commentary by the group filming the action.
And here’s the full video.
Ha! That one girl in the car is South Africa’s David Attenborough.
“Daar kom hy…nee fok shit. Ben draai net om”.
Hope the dumbass tourists in the car are ok though. Seriously though…don’t drive up to a fully grown male elephant. It’s not smart.
UPDATE: the elephant bull was killed after the incident took place on Monday.
“Several people have reacted with outrage at the Kruger National Park’s decision to kill an aggressive elephant bull that attacked a couple on Monday. “It was completely unnecessary to kill the elephant bull that damaged a car and injured a person yesterday in the Kruger Park. SANParks must provide us with the details of who took this decision and on what management level this utter stupid decision was taken,” Robbie Botes ” [News24]
