Aug. 25 (UPI) -- A couple driving on a road through a South African park ended up delayed when their path was blocked by a cute baby elephant that got a little aggressive with their car.

The video, recorded Sunday, shows the couple traveling down a road through Pilanesberg National Park when a playful baby elephant twirls its way into the road in front of them.

The car reverses to give the pachyderm some space, but the elephant gives chase and trumpets aggressively in response to the vehicle's horn.

The elephant stops chasing the car, but continues to watch the couple for several moments from the side of the road before wandering away.
