We all like to think that we’re “boss” from time to time, but this ellie was making sure everyone knew who was in charge, and even our local police force got a taste of the telling off…61 year old, Beryl Venter, a long time supporter of Latest Sightings, captured this amusing moment a couple of weeks ago.

Beryl told LatestSightings.com: “We were on our way home from Letaba after a five-week stay in Kruger – feeling very depressed and not expecting any “wow” sightings. We were then suddenly very excited to see the wild dogs running around and playing in the road – twenty-one of them.
We were the only vehicle at the sighting. We were taking photos as if it was the last ever sighting we would have of wild dogs running around us. We heard an elephant in the bushes and noticed a few dogs started running away. Suddenly, the elephant burst from out of the bushes and starting chasing a few of the dogs.
The elephant then turned around and ran towards us.We could not reverse because we had the caravan on tow and another vehicle was behind us. Only then the elephant stopped, threw his trunk over his tusks as if to say he’s done with us and very calmly walked into the bush. By then most of the dogs were gone. The story could have ended very differently if the elephant kept on running towards us and the other vehicle did not hoot. For sure the hooter stopped the elephant!!
