'Intoxicated' Sri Lankan Man Lucky To Be Alive After Attempting To Fight Elephant

Footage of a Sri Lankan man, thought to be intoxicated, picking a fight with the largest living land animal in the world has emerged.

The unidentified man allegedly had one too many drinks before he decided to antagonize a wild elephant, who had killed another person just days before, according to the Daily Mail.

The video, filmed at the Udawalawe National Park in Sri Lanka in South Asia, shows the man stumbling close to the four ton animal before lying down on an embankment directly in front of it.

The Huffington Post reports that horrified onlookers can be heard shouting, "Hey idiot, are you crazy?” and "What the f*** are you doing?”

The man is then knocked to the ground by the trunk of the elephant, who then appears to trample him before it wanders away. This guy is lucky to be alive.

While the drunk man survived the attack, he appeared to have lost part of his ear and his shirt was left covered in blood.
