Default Scary moments

Hi
following on from airport funnies, no doubt we have all had a few scary moments on holiday, I have, here's one.
When driving through Hluhluwe game park to a picnic area on a bend we came across a huge rhino on the road, I stopped about thrity yards away and turned the engine off, as rhinos are blind but have good hearing, I didnt want to annoy him. Unbeknown to us a works ten ton wagon was coming the other way, with a clatter of tin sheeting the rhino spooked and was charging all over the place, canny shots I thought, wife says not xxxxxxx likely. Have you ever seen a 1.4 vw polo do 0-60mph in five seconds in reverse. Think we would of looked silly stuck on the end of a rather large rhino horn.
Not as daft as the people if you follow the link below.
