We could have run this baby through Photoshop and added the label “Democratic Party” to the car, but it’s much more fun this way. The picture below actually depicts a close encounter between one of the residents of Pilanesburg National Park in South Africa and a visitor. (We’ll leave it to you to figure out which one was the visitor.)
According to GrindTV, the elephant was using the small car to scratch an itch, much to the horror of the passengers inside.
The elephant rubbed against and sat on the roof and hood of the VW Polo, extensively denting the vehicle, smashing out all the windows, blowing out all four tires, and breaking the chassis, according to Armand Grobler’s account in the U.K. Mirror.
“We were unsure of what to do in the situation when the elephant made contact with the car, and when the car was being crushed, we feared for the lives of the driver and passenger, but our efforts were very limited as to what we could do,” Grobler of Armand Grobler Photography told the Mirror.
