The forest brush exploded as the elephant cow charged at us wildly, head down, like a giant bulldozer. (Adult female weighing up to 7,125 lbs. and being around 9 feet tall). I started the engine, which will usually stop an elephant, but she didn't even hesitate. I was afraid she was going to ram the truck, so I slipped it out of gear. This way, it would roll easily when she hit it, and SHE wouldn't get hurt.

Call me crazy but I wouldn't be worried about the elephant getting hurt!
