Dangers in the Bush

Charging elephant kills 2 Britons in Zimbabwe

Hwange, where this occurred, is heavily populated with elephants. Parts of the game park look like they have been bombed due to the destructive eating habits of elephants.

The article says elephants are second to crocodiles in the danger list to humans. Some authorities would rate hippos highter. However, elephants are not confined to the same proximity to water as hippos.
