Redirected-Aggression

Aggression directed toward an individual that is irrelevant to current situation. When the tendency to attack is thwarted, for some reason (e.g. fear of opponent), the individual may redirect his/her aggression to some other animal or object, such as vegetation. This may involve trashing bushes, trees (Bush-Bashing) or throwing sticks, grass (Throw-Debris). Or attacking (Tusk/Turn-Toward/Advance-Toward/Mock-Charge, etc.) other, lesser elephants or smaller animals, humans--in the vicinity. (32)
