VIDEO: Mother elephant filmed trampling crocodile to death

In the video, the elephant violently attacks the crocodile with her trunk and head, before trampling the crocodile in the shallow river as a group of tourists watch

A tourist on safari filmed the moment an unlucky crocodile was trampled to death by a mother elephant after it stalked her calf at a river in Zambia.

In the video, the elephant violently attacks the crocodile with her trunk and head, before trampling the crocodile in the shallow river as a group of tourists watch.

The rare sighting was captured by Hans Henrik Haahr and has been shared by Latest Sightings, a YouTube channel that shares wildlife videos recorded across Africa.

“Elephants are generally peaceful and extremely caring animals; however, females can become very aggressive when protecting a young calf,” Latest Sightings said.

“Hans said he had almost no words to describe the interaction, just that it was ‘shocking’.”

The trampling resulted in the death of the crocodile, it said.
