Annoyed Black Rhino charges at Tourists on Safari

A rather angry black rhinoceros at Etosha National Park in Namibia was recently caught on camera charging straight at a car carrying a group of tourists.

Thankfully, the park visitors were able to escape their vehicle unharmed. 

A video of this terrifying incident was taken by Alexandra Poier, who was sitting inside a nearby car at the time.

The footage shows the animal first taking an unusual interest in the Toyota truck, which was parked on a dusty road next to its grassland home. However, the animal's interest quickly turns sinister.

Perhaps in an act of defense, the rhino started strolling towards the jeep, before breaking into a full sprint and ramming it repeatedly with its massive horn, reported international media.

Black rhinoceros are considered critically endangered and can only be found in the wild across southern and eastern Africa.

The Etosha National Park spans about 8,600 square miles, but rangers are unsure how many rhinos living in the area.
