If that’s the picture of the damage then he either didn’t hit a Gaur or the animal has flown 50 metres in to the forest and likely dead. I’ve hit a large bull that got out of a field many years ago. My car wasn’t half as badly damaged as that picture shows and the animal was stone dead with limbs hanging off a few metres away. Something not right if that’s a genuine picture
