The Moment an Elephant Picked Up a Buffalo With It’s Tusks, Shook It to Death

After the buffalo headbutted the elephant, she retaliated by digging her tusks into the creature and tossing the buffalo into the air with full force.

The buffalo did not die immediately and rangers at the reserve think the animal must have been unwell to act so out of character.

The extraordinary scene was captured by amateur photographer Kimberly Maurer, 56, who was on holiday at the game reserve.
