An African elephant damages a fence in the Timbavati Game Reserve, South Africa. Young bull elephants often like to wreak havoc for no particular reason other than showing off their strength. However, there’s the possibility that the low-frequency noises caused by the pump servicing a nearby waterhole irritated him. But it really looked like he was just having fun; like a mischievous teenager, he retreated hastily as soon as the rangers’ car appeared honking its horn.
