Elephants are one of the most loving animals in the world, they can also be aggressive and dangerous to humans if abused. Elephants are known to have killed thousands of people around the world especially in India.
They can crush an individual with their trunk and they can also knock someone out with their feet.

Elephants, especially the males are known to experience bouts of rage once a year. This rage is called Musth. It is a time where male Elephants experience an increase in testosterone. An encounter with an Elephant on musth might not end well because they are aggressive most times.

So when ever you are around and Elephant, try not to abuse it.
