"Ryk van Niekerk and Louise John Rex were cycling through the Groenkloof Nature Reserve in Pretoria, South Africa. Pair stopped to take pictures when giraffe stomped on Louise's £2,000 mountain bike.
Animal then chases cyclist when he attempts to assess the damage"



That Giraffe really hated that mountain bike.

Here's an interesting fact. The closest living relatives of the North American Pronghorn Antelope are Giraffes! It is the last surviving member of a family that numbered 12 species during the Pleistocene. All the others are extinct by the Pronghorn. When humans first entered North America there were 5 species of Antilocapridae. Strange but true!

Well I thought it was interesting.
