Terrifying Video Shows Jeep Carrying Tourists Topples As Rhino Chases It During Wildlife Safari
An SUV carrying a group of tourists in the Jaldapara National Park in West Bengal toppled after it was attacked by a rhinoceros on Saturday. The incident took place during a wildlife safari when the tourists in the two jeeps were clicking photographs of the rhino.
Wildlife safari turns nightmare
Spine-chilling footage shows the moment two rhinoceros charged at the safari vehicle. The video showed the driver hastily driving the vehicle backwards, and subsequently, the jeep fell into the ditch of the park.
The video was shared by Akash Deep Badhawan, an Indian Forest Services (IFS) officer on Twitter. He wrote, “I think it’s about time guidelines for safety and rescue in adventure sports are implemented in wildlife safaris across the country. Safaris are becoming more of adventure sports now! Jaldapara today!”.

According to a PTI report, seven tourists were injured. “The driver could not see the ditch behind, and the vehicle fell into it injuring people including the driver,” the news agency reported.
Netizens are furious
The video garnered close to 2 lakh views after being shared online. Twitter users had a lot to say after watching the clip, some people blamed the driver, while some said it’s time humans face nature’s wrath.
“Jeez! Hope all of em are good!” a user wrote.
Another user commented, “Guess the driver panicked seeing the pace of the rhino.” A third wrote, “New fear unlocked successfully.”
“Nature settles every things accordingly. What we give to the nature same we receive,” another user commented. A user said, “Yes.. Time that safaris are regulated. Have seen videos of gypsies being available close to tigers in parks putting stress on these wild animals. Tourism maybe helping generate revenue for protection of wild life, but there have to be clear rules. Off late, it’s stretching a lot.”
