A viral video of a man torturing an elephant has angered netizens and brought attention to the issue of animal welfare and the need to protect wildlife.
The video, popular on social media, shows a man making silly gestures and noises to provoke an elephant. The elephant, clearly upset, runs towards the man many times before being stopped by his guide.
Animal rights advocates and other concerned citizens have strongly criticized the video, demanding that the perpetrator be prosecuted and that captive animals be better protected.
There are several cases of humans helping or rescuing wild animals on social media. However, there are also videos of people disrespecting these animals.
IFS officials Saket Badola and Ramesh Pandey’s video of such disdain for nature has infuriated netizens. The viral video shows the man walking in front of the elephant with his hands crossed, prompting various opinions.

The viral clip was shared on Twitter by Ramesh Pandey with the caption: “He was suicidal, even then the gentle giant tolerated the man and let him go. Via: @Saket_Badola.”
The video shows the man nonchalantly walking past a tusk. The man stands in front of the elephant, with his hands crossed, without fear. “It’s hard to put up with such nasty idiots.”
Many people have condemned the man’s actions, calling them cruel and unjustified. They argue that captive animals must be treated with dignity and respect and that teasing or teasing for entertainment purposes is unacceptable.
Some internet users have even started online petitions and campaigns demanding that man be held accountable for his actions and that stricter rules be adopted to protect captive animals.
The tragedy has also highlighted the importance of better animal welfare education and awareness. Many people are unaware of the harm that can be caused by insulting or teasing animals, and many are unaware of the need to protect wildlife.
