Arnold Schwarzenegger charged by elephant on safari
The ‘Terminator’ posted a video on Twitter of an elephant charging towards him while on a game drive.
JOHANNESBURG - Movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger has posted a video on his Twitter account of a large elephant charging a safari vehicle he was in while on a game drive.
In the video, Schwarzenegger can be seen in the lower right corner of the frame as the massive elephant bats its ears at the safari Range Rover.
The game drive tour guide can also be seen sitting in the front seat, telling the animal, "'No, no, no," as it lowers a tusk into the Rover's hood with a loud clang.
I'm absolutely in awe of these beautiful animals, and I wish people would stop killing them for their ivory. pic.twitter.com/FYtO94aXU6— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) May 31, 2016
Schwarzenegger shared the moment on social media.
I couldn't have written this encounter better if it was for a movie. Some of us had to change our pants. Take a photo, not a shot.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) May 31, 2016
Schwarzenegger arrived in South Africa last week to officially open the Arnold Sports Festival at the Sandton Convention Centre.
Known as the 'Arnold Classic', the annual multisport event is named after the legendary bodybuilder.
The event followed in the footsteps of the original 'Arnold Classic', founded in 1989.
