Wild elephants trying to cross a river in southwest Yunnan province left two tourists injured.
The incident occurred when the river- crossing pachyderms ran into a family of five, Xinhua News Agency reported, citing forest police.
A woman suffered a fractured right shoulder while a man suffered a slight injury. Both were treated at a local hospital. The incident took place at the Wild Elephant Valley reserve in Xishuangbanna prefecture.
Police drove the elephants away but did not provide details on the nature of the encounter between the animals and the family.
In July, a group of 14 wild Asian elephants attacked and killed a woman in the Xishuangbanna area before chasing police and investigators from the scene.
