One of the greatest things about drive-thru safari parks is that they give visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with wildlife from the safety of their vehicles. But, as we all know, animals can be unpredictable. Very unpredictable.

Now, shocking footage has emerged of a lion doing the unthinkable to a car at a safari park in South Africa. To begin with, the passengers in the car appear bemused by the animal’s approach and then their bemusement quickly turns to fear…

To see what this rebellious lion did, check out the video below:

In the video, the lion can be seen pawing the side of the car out of curiosity before attempting to open its handle with its teeth.

When the driver realizes that the animal is trying to break into her car, she covers her mouth in shock.

Thirty-year-old Bronwyn Hattingh filmed the shocking incident. She was driving just in front of the car at around 5 am.

“You could hear the handle opening and closing. It was as if she had done it many times before,” Hattingh told

The video ends with the lion circling the car while the driver nervously drives off.

Hilariously, the lion in question decides to go in for seconds before eventually giving up on biting its way into the car.
