The incident took place in Kruger National Park
A shocking video showing an intoxicated man charging at an African elephant has been posted online.
Filmed in Kruger National Park in the North-East of South Africa, the man is shown running at the wild elephant which appears to advance momentarily before fleeing.
The man is reported to be an off-duty park ranger.
Weighing in at 12,000 pounds, African elephants are considered highly dangerous animals as they can be extremely aggressive when provoked.
The tusks are potentially lethal but in most cases, human deaths occur by trampling.

I wonder if he works for the IRS?
How could he run with testicles that big?

Wonder if he thought the elephant was pink?

How do they know he was intoxicated?

Beer bottles are visible in video.
They talked to the elephant and he admitted that he thought it was a mouse.

A bona fide “Hold muh beer” moment.

Because he was voluntarily charging an elephant?
Sooner or later that elephant is going to get tired of that game.

Big deal. When I lived in Alaska I used to charge Brown Bears all the time... wait, it was the other way around.
That guy’s judgement is seriously impaired. I wonder if he was the driver?

Brown bottle courage often ends badly. He was lucky.

He was lucky.
Yeah, well sometimes being lucky ends badly, too.
That elephant ain’t gonna forget that crap.

That was no elephant — it looked more like a RINO.

I don’t think so. The person in question has since been fired.
Anyone remember the eagle picking up the kid? That was “real” too.
