As he got near the Elephant, the bull wheeled around and let out a huge roar. You can see the man's response---he was back in the boat before you could count to five. (see previous image). [South Luangwa River, Zambia].
This unfortunate bull had stuck his head into a native's wire snare. He probably did this when he was smaller, because it appears to be snug around his neck and causing a visible ulceration. It's no wonder this fellow was irritable and chased all the impala away from where they were drinking. Natives set snares to catch small game, but it is illegal. Park personnel organize search parties to find and destroy them. [Masuma Dam, Hwange NP, Zimbabwe].
