IAS officer shares why taking selfie with wild elephants can be deadly


The video of a few men trying to capture a selfie with a herd of elephants was posted on Twitter.

Taking a selfie is all fun unless you end up doing it at a place where it can turn harmful for you or people around you. An example of such a situation is captured in a video shared by IAS officer Supriya Sahu. The clip shows a few people getting out of their car to take pictures with a herd of wild elephants.

“Selfie craze with wildlife can be deadly. These people were simply lucky that these gentle giants chose to pardon their behaviour. Otherwise, it does not take much for mighty elephants to teach people a lesson,” she wrote while sharing the video.

The video opens to show a few people getting out of their car to take selfies with a herd of elephants walking towards them. For a moment it feels like the gentle giants will come towards the men but thankfully, they change their course and enter the jungle on the side of the road.

Take a look at the video:

The video was posted on August 6. Since being shared, the clip has accumulated more than 69,000 views and the numbers are only increasing. The share has also prompted people to post various comments. “Saw video today of some selfie-crazy idiots trying that with a Tiger in Ranthambhore. Ran to their vehicle tiger came nearer and then tried luck again and had to speed the safari vehicle because tiger was mildly chasing them. One lost his mobile,” shared a Twitter user. “Crazy people… and then we blame wild animals for any subsequent damage,” commented another.
