Shocking! Viral video shows elephant chasing bikers away

In a hair-raising video making rounds of social media, an elephant was seen charging on two bikers, forcing them to abandon their vehicles and run away. The video shared on Twitter by forest officer Susanta Nanda that was filmed by a user shows the bikers, ignoring the instructions given by the forest as they tried to cross the roads at the time as the elephant.
The user who filmed the video Sreedhar V, said while posting the video, "These two-wheeler riders did not listen to FD staff and decided to go ahead while elephants were crossing and got charged at." Nanda tweeted while sharing the video, "Gently saying no. Enough is enough. When the elephant is with calf, the gentle giant can be a real giant."

Sir Notice the gentleness. Elephant in no way was trying to harm but only tried to scare off the people to protect its calf and after creating a safe distance left on its way. Elephants are ðÂÂÂÂÂÂ— Sam (@TheRealSam_02) April 29, 2020
How did the rider come from the left to right? Is there a smaller road merging with the Main Road there?— @ul V (@AttulV) April 29, 2020
Or was the rider trying to overtake the elephant, and lost control due to panic ðÂÂ¤ÂÂðÂÂ¤ÂÂ à¤¬à¤ÂÂ à¤ÂÂà¤ÂÂ à¤¦à¥ÂÂà¤¨à¥ÂÂà¤ÂÂ ðÂÂÂÂÂÂðÂÂÂÂÂÂ

Such gentle wisdom in such a huge creature .. will not harm wilfully.. stupid humans shd realise that they need their space esp when she’s with her calf .. #universalFierceMother but still just scaring them away not trampling them— Jaisree C (@cjaisree) April 29, 2020
