  • Watch this drunk guy charge a wild male elephant in Kruger [video]
    Posted by on May 14th, 2013

    Given my previous post of the half naked Cape Town guy stuck in Porta Loo toilet bowl HERE i thought i may as well stick with the wtf-were-you-thinking-theme and present you with this video of a drunk guy charging a wild male elephant in the Kruger National Park.

    The guys filming it are clearly South African, but not sure about the dude who charged the elephant.

    Not the brightest thing in the world to do hey. Besides being highly stupid i’m pretty sure it’s illegal.

    Is it just me or did some part of you also wish the elephant f**ked him up a bit. Not like badly hurt him, but just so he kakked himself and made worldwide headlines and every fail video for the next year for being a dumbass.

    The video was uploaded to Youtube a few days ago by someone calling his actions an absolute disgrace.

    UPDATE:

    The video was taken at Singita in the Kruger Park and the guy charging the elephant is Brian Thomas Masters, a safari guide at the lodge. He has been fired after a public outcry and has issued an apology.

    Apology accepted and i get the feeling it was a lapse of judgement on his part hey. He seems like a guy who has done great work in conservation and hopefully he can continue to do so.

    Singita
    As soon as we were made aware of a recent video spread through social media portraying a field guide confronting a wild elephant, Singita took immediate action to investigate the unacceptable behaviour. The investigation is now complete and severe action has been taken against those responsible – three guides involved in the confrontation are no longer employed by Singita. Singita condemns behaviour like this and it in no way represents our ethos or philosophy.
