A RAMPAGING circus elephant smashes a car and terrifies holidaymakers after appearing to be beaten by a handler.
Filmed in Danish beach town Karrebaeksminde, this shocking footage was captured by tourist Oddmar Nygard, 48, last weekend. The video begins when three elephants become agitated after being bathed in the sea in front of a large crowd.
As the circus workers start to lose control, the huge beasts veer dangerously close to onlookers, including babies in prams and an elderly man in a mobility scooter – who had to be lifted off the road to safety.
One of the colossal animals looks increasingly distressed and flies into a rage after it is apparently struck with a metal crowbar by one of the keepers.
