The wheels of the Santro are turned towards the right when the wild elephant started pushing. Because of this, the Santro kept moving in circles. It is not known why the elephant was angry or whether he or she was provoked or not.

Animals attacking vehicles have become quite common. Recently, a video of Wild Indian Bison attacking a three-wheeler went viral on social media. The incident happened in Kerala and it is expected that the Wild Indian Bison was provoked because of the headlamps on the three-wheeler. There was another incident that happened in Hasanurm, Karnataka where an elephant attacked a Honda Amaze.

One should always maintain a safe distance when there is a wild animal around. These animals are very sensitive to little things such as diesel clatter, flashy lights, sudden movements, music, horn etc. The animal might get scared and think the person is here to attack him or her. Because of this, the animal can attack the vehicle. If a person ever encounters a herd or a wild animal, it is best to park the car on the side and wait for them to leave.
