Next time you're stuck in traffic complaining about your commute remember it could be a lot worse.

You could have a 5,000 pound rhino charging at you.

Terrifying footage has emerged showing the huge horned beast rampaging down a street in southern Nepal town of Hetauda.

Two unfortunate motorcyclists can be seen fleeing the beast in front of it, while screams and panicked shouts can be heard in the background.

A crowd of curious onlookers can be seen following the beast at a distance.


One person was reportedly killed and three others wounded in the attack. It is unclear whether or not the rhinoceros survived.

The greater one-horned rhino was nearly driven to extinction in the early 20th century but rigorous conservation efforts have seen its numbers bounce back.

Anti poaching efforts have also helped boost their numbers. In Nepal's Chitwan National Park there are 1,100 soldiers patrolling 24/7 to deter poachers.

There are now 3,555 rhinos scattered throughout north east India and Nepal.

However there have been several incidences of rhinos rampaging through small Nepali towns - partly due to urban expansion.
