    "Unfortunately we had to put down the elephant because we did not understand the behaviour," said Mr Mabasa.

    They then discovered that the male elephant had been "on musth", a periodic condition where testosterone levels rise and elephants become more aggressive.
    So the elephant was in the middle of a known period of increased aggression, being stalked by a car that stopped dead when faced (could be seen as confrontation from the animal), so was rolled resulting in a minor injury to a passenger - so the elephant was killed?!

    Typical behaviour of humans to be honest - kill anything we don't immediately understand.

    I think the elephant might have been a threat to the teacher. I mean her job, as it obviously had more sense than she did.
