Elephant uses car to relieve an itch

Well, wouldn’t you? 😉

Sometimes you get an itch you just have to scratch.

And when this elephant’s case saw a car full of tourists approaching, he saw the perfect opportunity.

Two terrified occupants of a VW Polo found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time as the giant animal stooped down to rub itself against the vehicle’s roof and bonnet.

The incredible scene was captured by field guide and lodge manager Armand Grobler, 21, at Pilanesburg National Park in South Africa.

See the pictures at the story page. The good news is, the people were unharmed; the car, however, was totalled.
