Wrestling elephants block road through South African park

Sept. 25 (UPI) -- A tour vehicle on safari in South Africa had to stop on a dirt road when a pair of wrestling elephants blocked the path.

The video, filmed on a road through Tembe Elephant Park in KwaZulu Natal, shows the vehicle stop in the dirt road due to two elephants using their trunks to play fight in the middle of the road.


The vehicle catches the attention of one of the pachyderms, and it approaches from the side.

The elephant comes uncomfortably close to a man's face and strikes an intimidating pose, but the group said the animal eventually walked away without incident.
