A shocking clip of a group of people trying to take selfies with elephants has been trending on social media. In the clip, people were seen stopping their cars close to the herd as they were trying to cross the road.
The clip was posted by IAS officer Supriya Sahu and the video has irked social media users.
The clip begins with a group of men stopping their vehicles to click pictures. Two men were seen clicking selfies with the elephant herd. One elephant is seen getting irritated and running towards the group in anger.
