    A rescuer said: ‘They were absolutely terrified and extremely traumatised by what happened and were in fear that the elephant would return and attack them again.

    ‘It is very fortunate for all inside that the elephant did not pierce the side of the car with his tusks as that could have been certain death for anyone sitting in their path.

    ‘It is thought the male elephant was in musth which means it has surging levels of his testosterone hormone which makes him sexually hyperactive and very aggressive.

    ‘Unfortunately for this family the elephant took its temper on not having a female around to try and mate with out on their car.

    ‘The family were very shaken and a little bruised but I think it will be a while before they take a drive through an elephant reserve on their travels again’ sy het gese.
