When you live in South Africa, you know that everyone understands the word voetsek, but we don’t think that counts for animals, too.

One man, however, could not help but use this passionate expression when an angry rhino was charging his car.

A video originally shared on Twitter shows a wildlife photographer in a rather dangerous situation when he is confronted by a white rhino bull.

But things take a dramatic turn when the man in the video decides to start his vehicle's engine.

The sound of the engine clearly aggravated the animal as the rhino started charging.

“Don’t you even think about it,” the photographer says as he tries to escape the animal.

He then proceeds to speed up the vehicle, and looking distressed; he shouts, “Hey, voetsek, voetsek,” but this did not seem to faze the animal, who continued to charge the vehicle.

According to reports, the animal eventually backed off, and the driver managed to speed past it to safety.
