This trail guide remains incredibly calm and manages to halt a charging elephant in South Africa.
The video was filmed at Kruger National park and shows the elephant being stopped in its tracks.
“The elephant encounter is an authentic example of how calm energy can influence the behavior of wild animals,” Alan McSmith told Newsflare.
Most trail guides who have seen the video admit that they may have shot the elephant in self-defense, 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 added.
“Therefore, ultimately, the video is about the elephant and not me.”
