A video making the rounds shows the moment an elephant attacked a bicycle rider and seized his bicycle.
In the video, the bicycle rider is seen lying on the floor beside his bicycle while the elephant towers over him.
The man, who appearsto be overcome by fear, didn’t run, instead, he lay there.
Eyewitnesseswho filmed the incident appeartoo afraid to go close to help the bicycle rider. From a distance, they screamat the elephant in a foreign language.
At one point, the elephant lifts the man’s bicycle before dropping it to the ground. The elephant then stands over the man and appears ready tostomp him with its feet.
“Pardon, pardon,” the eyewitnesses screamwith a sense of urgency.
They also appearto be screaming at the man to escape and the man eventually gathers himself up and runs off.
It is not clear in which African country the incident happened.
