When out at a safari park, it’s important to make sure to either keep your windows all the way rolled up or half-way. Sometimes people don’t follow these rules, and the results can be devastating.
At West Midlands Safari Park, video was taken by some onlookers from their car of another couple making their way through the park. The video picks up with a giraffe poking its head into the passenger side window of the car, surprising the young woman in the seat. Panicking a bit, the couple then began to roll the window up on the giraffe’s head. However, the force of the window pressed against the skull of the giraffe could only result in one outcome.
Disobeying the rules harms animals
The window very quickly shattered which caused the giraffe to jolt up. The couple who recorded the video checked on the state of the passengers in the other car and called for a zoo keeper to check on the state of the animal.
Fortunately for the giraffe, it sustained no injuries as a result of the glass shattering upon its face. The incident is currently under investigation.
