Giraffe’s head smashes car window in attempt to get treat


An adventurous giraffe smashed the window of a car at a Safari park in its attempt to reach for a treat inside the car, just as the owners of the car wound the window up.

The incident took place at West Midlands Safari Park in Bewdley in England and it was caught on camera by onlookers.

The video showed the large animal putting its head inside the car to get food from the lap of the car passenger. However, the car passenger became afraid and attempted to wind up the car window. The window only managed to close halfway before smashing against the giraffe’s head.

Speaking in the video, one woman can be heard asking: “Oh God – are you alright? Do you want me to try and call someone?” The female passenger responds that she is “fine”, however there “is glass everywhere”.

In reaction, the staff at West Midlands Safari Park have now launched an investigation into the incident.

The giraffe was immediately given a look over to determine if it sustained any injuries.
