WATCH - Arnold Schwarzenegger Gets Chased By An Elephant - EXPLICIT #CTandB

June 2, 2016

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER was on safari in South Africa recently when an elephant charged his vehicle, and it WAS a serious situation.  The elephant checked them out for a bit, and then started to walk away.  But it hadn't lost interest . . . it was preparing to come at them.  

Fortunately, their driver gunned it just as the elephant started running at them . . . and they got away before anyone was hurt.

Arnold posted a video of the encounter on YouTube, and said, quote, "I couldn't have written this safari encounter better if it was a movie.  

"I'm absolutely in awe of these beautiful, strong animals, even though some of us had to change our pants after this.  We need to stop killing them . . . take a photo, not a shot.  

"Would you rather be able to experience these creatures or a hunk of ivory?  I thought so."
