Elephant’s Road Crossing Interrupted by Selfie-Seeking Onlookers: A Call for Responsible Behavior

The intricate dance between humans and animals is showcased in numerous videos, revealing both harmony and distress in the animal kingdom.

A recent video captures a disturbing scene as a group of selfie-obsessed onlookers obstruct an elephant’s attempt to cross a road.

Watch the video at the end.


Shared by Indian Forest Services (IFS) officer Surender Mehra, the video raises questions about human behavior around wildlife.

The footage begins with a man keenly filming the elephant on his phone, seemingly oblivious to the animal’s unease as it navigates the road.

As the camera pans, it becomes evident that people are standing in the elephant’s path to capture the perfect shot.


Mehra’s tweet accompanying the video questions why humans endanger themselves only to blame the innocent animal for the ensuing conflict.
