A gripping video shows a rhino charging furiously down a highway in the Indian state of Assam.

The massive beast is seen racing on the road, at great pace, forcing all incoming traffic to do a u-turn.

Debashish Goswami followed the angry rhino in his car, recording the wild chase on his mobile phone.

“I was returning from Guwahati (the state capital) with my wife when I saw this rhino charging down the road. I decided to film this once in a lifetime moment,” said Goswami, who has a government job.

2. The Indian Rhino (I saw one once when there... Impressive & deserving of major respect)

The damage a nearly 2 1/2 ton animal can do is "impressive" to say the least.

4. To me, the amazing part. That animal weighs a ton or so. Yet runs for about 2 miles without tiring.

Then we don't know how long it was running before the driver began video.

10. I was surprised at that too. But it looked like it was tiring toward the end

At the end it was going slower and taking little breathers. It seemed like it looked at that bus and other vehicle together and thought, "Nah. Too tired."

9. Rhinos go places, do things. Play chicken.

Youthful hijinks. Fun was had by all.
