Cape Town - Footage showing an enraged rhino repeatedly ramming a Toyota bakkie in Etosha National Park in Namibia has gone viral.
Although the footage was already uploaded to YouTube at the end of October in 2014, it has gone viral online and on social media once again.
The footage, taken by Alexandra Poier, who was sitting inside a nearby car at the time, shows the animal walking in the veld before suddenly speeding up and running toward the Toyota.
It smashes into the bakkie, causing it to move out of its tracks, because retreating and gaining momentum to ram into the bakkie's side a second time.

The rhino appears to have had a mud-bath in the lighter Namibian soil, as a distinct line on the animal's dark side can be seen.
The black rhinoceros, which inhabits areas across southern and eastern Africa, is critically endangered and an unknown number of the animals live in the Etosha National Park.
Poier told The Telegraph the rhino might have seen the bakkie as threat, and that is why he attacked. She said she was very relieved that the rhino didn't target their vehicle.
“To be honest, I was quite scared because it could have been our car.
“It happened very quickly and suddenly. After he went to the side of our car and we left quickly," she remembered.
