The assistant managers Dylan Taylor and Hayley Simleit from Tiger Safaris Chirundu, were involved in a random elephant attack whilst walking with their dogs, very close to the Total garage by the main road, a path regularly used by locals.
They noticed a young bull elephant in the distant bush, but before they knew it the young bull charged, pinning Hayley down.
Dylan attempted to distract the bull but to no avail and the 2nd bull attacked Dylan, by now the rest of the herd was surrounding them.
The general consensus is that poaching is rife and dogs are used for hunting, even though their dogs were on a leash the elephants may have picked up their scent. Fortunately this has a happy ending. Both Dylan and Hayley are very battered and bruised and traumatized but have survived to tell the tale. Special thanks go to all who assisted in their rescue.
