Dec. 11 (UPI) -- An elephant that apparently had an itch to scratch was caught on camera attacking a bus and a truck on a Chinese road for over two hours.

The video, recorded Saturday using a camera drone and a cellphone, shows the elephant using its head to smash the bus' windshield and then using the vehicle to apparently scratch an itch on the side of its body.

The video also shows the elephant shoving a truck on the road in Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province.

Witnesses said the elephant attacked the vehicles for two and a half hours before wandering away.

The only person aboard the bus at the time of the attack was the driver, who was not injured.
