Vehicle window shatters over giraffe's head at West Midland Safari Park

Graphic video shows a giraffe's head being trapped briefly inside a vehicle after the driver rolls up the window at the West Midland Safari and Leisure Park.

During certain areas of the drive-through safari park, visitors are allowed to feed some animals from their cars.

But the couple inside appeared to wind up the window - which then shattered over the 15-year-old giraffe's head.

Staff at West Midlands Safari Park have now launched an investigation into the incident, which was uploaded to YouTube.

Apparently realizing her mistake, the woman started rolling up the window into its proper position.


The woman sitting behind the wheel, quickly began to close the automatic window button, but the tallest animal in the world do not have time to remove the head, but on the contrary, persistently continued to poke him in the face. Do you want me to try and call someone?'

The person with the camera says that the giraffe might be injured and says he is going to call for help as the clip ends.

"The giraffe was perfectly fine", the driver told 9Pickle. In fact, we had lots of glass in our auto, on my lap and on the dash.

"However, the giraffe was checked over immediately by staff and sustained no injuries from the glass". West Midland Safari Park have since confirmed they are investigating the matter.

We hope the big guy is safe.
