Two tourists could have avoided an attack by an elephant in the Kruger National Park if they had known how to read its body language, an animal behaviour expert has said.
Les Hes, a wildlife guide with 35 years’ experience in reading animal behaviour, was speaking after watching video footage of the attack posted on the internet this week, a correspondent reported on Wednesday.
The tourists, Sarah Brooks and her South African-born fiance Jans de Klerk, who live in Spalding, in the UK, made headlines two weeks ago when the elephant attacked them near the N’waswitshaka waterhole, near Pretoriuskop, on December 30.
