“On a late afternoon game drive in the Kruger National Park, we stopped to watch a lone male white rhino drinking water at a pan,” the filmer said.
“Suddenly, out of nowhere, a large male elephant appeared at the pan.” “This bull elephant seemed incredibly irate to find another large animal at the water,” the filmer continued.
“The elephant bull aggressively confronted the rhino, and the rhino initially stood his ground.” “The angry elephant then decided to get physical and pushed the rhino onto its side,” the filmer said.
“The rhino started squealing and screaming while the angry elephant relentlessly pushed and shoved the fallen rhino with its tusks.”
“The extreme endangered classification of the rhinoceros prompted the guide to distract the elephant bull by moving the vehicle and shouting and whistling at the elephant,” the filmer explained.
“This seemed to have the desired outcome and shortly afterwards the rhino can be seen beating a hasty retreat.”
