This is the moment a charging baby elephant joined its mother as a massive herd of giant animals bounded towards a safari vehicle.
The animal incident in South Africa has been branded ‘the cutest attack ever’ after the baby was caught on camera chasing older herd members while running towards the car.
The elephants can be seen rushing at speed in the footage recorded earlier this month.
It shows the calf with its trumpeting mother in Kruger National Park in what visitors describe as a ‘very memorable encounter.’
The person who recorded the footage wrote online: ‘Our guide thought there might be a problem as soon as we came upon the group.
‘He told us we might have to reverse quickly to leave them alone. How right he was. ‘
The videographer added: ‘This is possibly the cutest elephant attack ever.’
