Tour Guide Keeps Cool As Elephant Charges At Him Twice


A tour guide at a South African park was filmed keeping his cool as an aggressive elephant repeatedly charged toward him.

The video, filmed Dec. 1, shows safari guide Alan McSmith keeping calm and standing his ground as a bull elephant charges toward him twice.

The elephant stops short of colliding with the guide both times.

"The elephant encounter is an authentic example of how calm energy can influence the behaviour of wild animals," McSmith said. "Most trail guides who have seen the video admit that they may have shot the elephant in self-defence, it was that close."

"The footage is a testament to elephant's intelligence and complex behavior and shows how humans and animals can connect on a meaningful level," he said. "Therefore, ultimately, the video is about the elephant and not me."
