Elephants are easily one of the most beloved creatures on the planet - but all the attention that comes with being a celebrity of the animal kingdom isn't always welcome. Faced with throngs of pesky tourists invading their space, growing bolder by the day, at least one fed-up elephant has finally put her foot down.
A car full of tourists passing through India's Bandipur forest got more than they bargained for after stopping along the roadside to take a few selfies with an elephant mother and her young calf. The protective parent, naturally, wasn't thrilled.
"They began clicking pictures," witness Austin Cherupuzha told the Bangalore Mirror. "It may have been the camera flash which disturbed the pachyderm, and [she] charged at them. The couple managed to escape. The car's windows were open. It was then the bizarre thing happened."
