    Man attempts to hypnotize elephant. Elephant not hypnotized.

    There's video, although a little grainy.

    Was he drunk, or was it the terrain that made him stagger?

    Most likely just a language barrier.
    You have to communicate your intentions before you just go running up to an elephant like that; otherwise they might feel threatened.

    No telling what may happen if they feel threatened.

    And I mean communicate not just telepathically, of course.
    Some elephants just aren't perceptive that way.

    This reminds me of a video I watched on YT about animals killing people and a camel rushed a woman and she eventually died. Afterwards, they were told he wasn't trying to attack her, he was actually in heat and trying to mate with her.

    She must've been quite the looker, getting a camel so aroused as that.
    Or maybe it was her scent.

    I've been thinking about this and watching that video repeatedly.
    I think the guy was right there with the hypnosis thing.

    I swear; I can see that the elephant is just about to fall into a hypnotic trance right before he crushes the guy to death.
    Ten more seconds and that guy would have been doing all the crazy, funny things that any one of us usually does with a hypnotized elephant.

    Thank you Upset, I needed a good laugh. Poor Elephant has some serious Toe Jam now.

    That was nuts ! Guy: "Hi, I am going to hypnotize you". Elephant: "Fuck off".
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    I think it was an inter-species hate crime.
    That elephant hates humans.
