An investigation is reportedly underway after footage emerged of a man drunkenly charging at a wild elephant in a South African game reserve.
The video, which appears to have been taken in Kruger National Park, shows the man running at the elephant while it moves towards him.
He falls over, but then gets up and charges at the animal again.
This time, the elephant runs away as the man's friends cheer.
The video created outrage online with many viewers calling for the unknown man to be punished.
Latest Sightings, a website that includes details of recent wildlife sightings in the national park, posted the footage online after it was sent to them over the weekend.
In a comment on Facebook, they said the man was drunk at the time and the incident was now under investigation.
"(This video) made my blood BOIL," Latest Sightings wrote.
"A drunk man charging a WILD elephant in Kruger.
Behaviour like this has to be punished."
