In what is said to have been an attempt to ‘hypnotise’ the elephant and stop it in its tracks, the man does not run away.

The elephant knocks the man to the ground and tramples him to death on the spot.

Even as the elephant comes up close, he does not run away, and ends up being trampled to death by the huge animal

Human interaction with wild elephants is not uncommon in the area as expansion of infrastructure and homes has destroyed the animals natural habitat.

The local forestry department have been made aware of the incident and said they are supporting the family.
