An elephant was put down in South Africa's Kruger National Park after it attacked and overturned a vehicle, ripping open a British woman's thigh with its tusk, the park said Tuesday.
The bull injured a couple, who had been filming it, after charging at their car in the mega-wildlife reserve on Monday.
"It suddenly stopped, turned around and rapidly walked towards the vehicle which was stationery at that time," the park said.
"The elephant charged at them, attacked the vehicle and flipped it over off the road into the thick bushes."
