A petrified Australian woman screamed for her life as an elephant chased her Jeep during her safari tour.
Liz Jacobs was on a wildlife excursion in Sri Lanka’s Kaudulla National Park when she began begging her tour driver to stay away from a large herd of elephants.
But as one of the large animals, displeased with the tour group, was near, began to chase their car, Mrs. Jacobs let out a shrill scream.
Despite the elephant trumpeting its warning in the distance, Ms.Jacobs’ cries drowned out the sound of the animal as she yelled to motorists, ‘faster, faster! Keep going!’
“We really thought we were going to d.i.e for a moment, and then the elephant just backed off,” she said after the event.
‘I must have hurt his ears with my screams!’
Ms.Jacobs can be heard sobbing in the footage at the end of the video after the elephant finally gave up the chase.
“We didn’t want to get close to them, but the drivers just kept going and doing what they were paid to do,” she said.
‘We swung wide to avoid the elephants because we didn’t want to get in their way. But one jeep, in particular, just got too close.
‘The elephant started charging, and another jeep passed us, causing us to be chased.
‘Then they stopped so we would get stuck, but I kept yelling at them to keep going.’
