A camera captured the elephant Saturday as it tried to situate itself on the front portion of the vehicle, apparently trying to get an up-close look at the car.

The weight of the large animal partially crushed the hood of the car as the elephant struggled to keep its balance, according to the video.

In a possibly separate incident, a motorist captured an elephant peering into their car. A crushing sound could be heard on the video as the animal moved against its side, indicating some sort of damage.

A grocery store was also damaged Monday when another pachyderm smashed a grocery store window as part of the apparent rash of elephant attacks in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima, CNN reported.

No injuries have been reported.

Officials with Khao Yai National Park explained that the aggressive elephant behavior was likely a result of mating season, according to the cable news channel.
