WATCH: Car window shatters over giraffe's head at West Midland Safari Park

The giraffe caught on camera getting his head trapped in the window is doing fine, say West Midland Safari Park bosses.

Strider poked his head through the window of a car in a hunt for food.

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

Another park-goer captured the footage on camera from a neighbouring car.

Bosses from the safari park in Bewdley said the animal had checked over by staff and suffered no injuries.

A West Midland Safari Park spokesman said: “As this incident is under investigation, we cannot currently comment.


"However, the giraffe was checked over immediately by staff and sustained no injuries from the glass.”

During certain areas of the drive-through visitors are permitted to feed some animals from their vehicles.

But windows should be kept half shut while visitors are instructed to keep their hands outstretched outside the vehicle while doing so.

In the video Strider bends down between two cars and pokes his head in to get food from a tub before the couple appear to panic winding up the window which shatters into pieces.
