Hey so everyone seemed to have such a good time with that video of the machete wound I figure I should post some more GORE. This time from Asia.
ONE YEAR AGO: I was waking along a stream and watching a group of elephants on the other side. I was pretty far from them and the stream separated us so I was a safe distance away. So I thought until I came face to ass with a full grown BULL ELEPHANT. He trumpeted, bitch-slapped a tree into splinters and charged. I RAN. And for thirty seconds had the closest call of my life. Hands down. It was not a mock charge. This elephant wanted to kill me, was trying to. In the end I flung myself off the stream bank and down onto the rocks - the elephant almost came down on top of me. But he couldn’t climb down. Instead he threw a stick at me with his trunk and kicked rocks onto me from above. I gave him the finger. Then everything went red.
When the elephant left I went and got my bag. Took some DSLR selfies, and was so thankful to be alive that I smiled the rest of the day! .
Now the serious part of this is that elephants are so desperate for forest, and so traumatized by humans - that they are becoming violent. The bull that chased me has no doubt had bad experiences with humans before. It’s actually really sad that they get pushed to that point. Hopefully the chase was cathartic for him - He did a hell of a good job trying to kill me!👏 .

So terribly sad elephants are pushed to that point. And how amazing you endured and survived.
Wow wt an situation 🙄
Wow. Unbelievable situation.
I can almost hear in my mind the elephant saying, “yeah keep runnin, better watch your back.” Glad you are okay and I hope the bull still is.
I’m watching 72 most dangerous animals Asia and I just saw you on the show telling this very story!
Wowwwww! Glad you’re ok!
@manikvasudeva thanks brother 🙏 🤙🏾
Brilliant story man. Love what you stand for. Shows so well in your work. Sending good energy and lots of love from Singapore mate.
@el_tigre616 exactly! That’s what I love about his story... he understood the “why” of its reaction to him. Lots of respect for this guy. 💚🐝
@risabee 😧 That's crazy. I certainly have more respect these days, not just for the animals, but for people who are attacked by them and have the compassion to understand that they're not just a malicious killer.
@el_tigre616 This is the story I was telling you about... 💚🐝
Wow. Glad you made it.
This was a fantastic read, glad you were alive to tell it! What's sad is knowing elephants have such a sweet disposition with us humans- viewing us as cute lil puppies and being tender with us.. knowing that ahead of time, and how upset that Bull was, makes it even sadder 🙁
Hahaha this is awesome. Definitely the “real” version compared to the PG/PC version on the 72 deadly animals episode! Lol! Love it! Thanks for sharing!
@wanj.jiruu we pray for you
I have nothing but utmost respect for you. I’m really glad you took it in the right spirit and understood its (the elephant’s) fear, anguish and mentality in general. Despite having such a close encounter with death, instead of just mindlessly lashing out, you didn’t diverge from the truth of the situation and well, also celebrated that you made it out alive and shared this wonderful experience with us! Thanks a lot! Kudos! :D
I watched this story literally today!!!!
I just saw this story on the Netflix series 72 dangerous animals Asia! Incredible you made it out safely!!
Это чудо остатся в живых после столкновения со слоном. Они борятся за свои территории. Их тоже можно понять. Притесняют постоянно, убивают за бивни, да к тому же живут среди хищников. 😢😢😢😢😢❤❤❤❤❤
Very sad situation. All down to man’s greed. Some humans really suck. Glad you escaped pretty much unscathed. Could’ve been much worse. Nothing like an angry, charging bull elephant to increase your sprint speed! 😄
Ooo la la
Fan. Tastic. Glad you got away!
Ohh god that’s awful ☹️be safe
I feel bad for you, but that is the best story ever that you can tell until you actually do die. Keep up the great work my friend.
You should get cast in the next avatar 👍🏼👀🌿🙌🏼
Good reaction, that would have been a painful way to go.
Scary! Glad you were able to think quick like one of those action movie heroes.
Did he step on a Lego with his face?
@spydrpotamus It adds an element of spite lol
