MEXICO CITY (AP) — A rhinoceros chased and repeatedly rammed a small sport utility vehicle carrying visitors at a zoo park in central Mexico, according to a video posted by a man in a car just behind.

Josue Fernando Gonzalez Aguilar was visiting the Africam Safari in the central state of Puebla on July 30 when he noticed the rhino trotting at a group of zebras. Families tour the park in their cars, while the animals roam freely.

But then the rhino took an interest in a small black SUV, repeatedly ramming its bumpers and seemingly attacking the vehicle's tires.

The video shows the rhino following the SUV as it tries to escape, continuing to ram its back bumper.

Gonzalez Aguilar said Friday park employees on foot tried to control or distract the animal.
