Tourists Chased by Elephant in IndiaTourists Chased by Elephant in India

Tourists at Uttarakhand's Jim Corbett National Park in India got more than they bargained for after an elephant tried to attack the jeep they were travelling in. A video tweeted by ANI news agency shows an elephant charging toward a jeep and chasing the tourists away, NDTV reported. Trumpeting loudly, the big mammal runs after the vehicle, but stops after it manages to surge ahead. The tourists are heard in the background saying, 'Bhago, bhago!' meaning "run, run!" Jim Corbett National Park, located in Uttarakhand's Ramnagar, offers jeep safari across various zones inside the forests. The wildlife sanctuary is home to elephants and leopards, along with hundreds of species of birds.  Over the last few years, the national park has registered an increase in elephant population.
