If this elephant is known to be causing problem by aggressive behavior, then the ranger should go and sort out the problem. :hmz:


He is by no means a problem or 'aggressive' compared to Kruger elephants, he's just being a grumpy old bull in musth, rather normal elephant behaviour. I think people are just used to the placid nature of the Addo Elephants and need to be aware that circumstances change behaviour and just have to be a bit more careful when he's around!

Bush Fairy, I fully agree with you. People need to realise that we are in territory assigned to the animals and are fully responsible for our behaviour and safety. I started this thread to share my exciting thrill - not to make it sound as though Paul is nutty and should be shot. He is magnificent and has given me a memory that will last forever. Yes, he was grumpy - I get like that too!

He is certainly a beautiful specimen, a joy to watch (at a distance :wink: ) - despite the fact that I am terrified of elephants!!
