Man Lucky To Be Unharmed After Jumping Into Danish Zoo’s Elephant Enclosure 😮

In Denmark, a man thought it would be a great idea to hop into the elephant enclosure at the the Copenhagen Zoo. A homo sapien intruder probably isn’t often too welcome among these giants, but luckily, thanks to their slow reaction, the jumper is safe and sound.

Footage of the incident can be seen below…

The adult elephants immediately react by guarding a young calf from the man. Then they walk towards him, and the man tries to calm them. Then a woman yells to him exactly how to exit safely while occasionally attempting to stall the elephants. They follow him trumpeting all the way until he’s out of their habitat. Luckily, he made it out just fine. Witnesses state that the man did not respond to Danish instructions and only responded when the instructions switched to English, leading many to believe he was a tourist.

Many tried to analyze how the elephants were reacting…

While some thought, perhaps, elephants were a safer option than some other animals…

And he wasn’t the only one with this idea. There was this woman who tried the giraffes…

And this one who thought it was a good idea to grab her cap from a tiger…

And others are not so lucky with the animal’s reaction…

Which people seemed to find quite amusing…

And by #respecttheking, we mean DON’T JUMP INTO ANIMAL ENCLOSURES.
