Mike and Marian Myers found out the hard way what happens when elephants encounter a GoPro video camera on their own turf. They captured the footage below while staying at Little Makalolo Camp in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, which is renowned for its huge elephant populations. They’d set up the camera on the edge of a watering hole in the hope of capturing some video of wild dogs they’d seen earlier that day. The elephants, who are apparently not big fans of new technology, had a different idea.
