Earlier this month, an elephant also damaged three cars within the same national park, although vets are unsure if it was the same creature

He said:’The elephants may ƅe under strain during the mating season. The movement of vehicles might have added to the tension.’

When female elephants reach sexual maturity, they are generally kicked out of their herd, so they do not mate with family memƅers.

This is why the elephant has escaped, and drivers going through the park have ƅeen warned to ƅe more cautious.
