It is rightly said elephants are the most gentle and intelligent giants. They might be massive and the largest land animals, but they are very friendly and do not cause any harm to anyone, until or unless they are provoked or feel threatened.

However, they can be aggressive sometimes depending on the situation. Meanwhile, a video of a young girl teasing a huge tusker and subsequently suffering instant karma has been going viral.

The video starts with a woman holding a bunch of bananas and calling the tusker toward herself. As the magnificent animal walks towards her, the girl teases it with just one banana instead of giving the whole bunch.

The woman tries to entice the huge tusker as if she is ordering the mighty jumbo to follow her commands. The tusker follows her for a few seconds until it becomes unbearable for her. Infuriated, the big animal gives a simple nudge to the damsel who ends up being thrown into the air.

IFS Susanta Nanda shared the video and wrote, “You can’t fool an elephant even though he is tamed. They are one of the most intelligent animals to be in captivity.”

Since being shared online, the video has garnered 355.3K views with 3087 likes and 520 retweets.

“True, many tourists’ take elephants for granted like a pet dog, it can take your life in a fraction of seconds… a wild animal is always wild,” commented a user.

Another user wrote, “Well, we have to give respect to the king of the forest and stay away from his presence, the real king who made the forest with tons and tons of trees.”

“Elephants are the most dangerous thing in the Indian jungle, when you calculate their spread/number/intelligence/strength. I always roam in and around jungle, and these are the ones I keep an eye for and always stay at least 100 meters from them,” commented a third user.

“Me and my cousin went to feed a young pet elephant who for some reason got pissed off and hurled my cousin lightly. He was thrown a few yards away and was rushed to the hospital with severe eye injury and scratches, such is the power of their trunk. They are not to be messed with,” wrote another user.
