THE moment a car window smashes on a giraffe's head is dramatically captured here on video.

The video, posted to YouTube, appears to show a nervous passenger winding the window up after the inquisitive giraffe - called Strider - sticks his head into her side of the car.

A shocked onlooker captures as the window smashes on the giraffe's head when it is stuck between the glass and the roof of the car.

The incident happened at West Midland Safari Park on Sunday, April 8.

A West Midland Safari Park spokeswoman 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."

Visitors to the safari park in Bewdley are allowed to feed some of the animals. However, the park's regulations show that windows should be kept half-shut and visitors are told not to allow animals to put their heads inside their vehicles.
