Most of the time it’s up to animal lovers to stand up for animals, but every now and again they get a chance to duke it out with those that dare to threaten them or their families. The elephants shown throughout this video aren’t happy about their habitats being taken over for tourism purposes … and let’s just say they put a few people in their place.

We can’t help but shake our heads, especially since none of the people involved appear to be seriously hurt. Elephants, on the other hand, endure immense injustices and cruelty day after day at the hands of human greed – from exploitation, captivity, and trophy hunting. With one elephant killed every 15 minutes for their ivory tusks, it’s not surprising that the elephant is at risk of extinction. Scientists estimate that unless serious measures are taken to protect them, they could be extinct from the wild within the next 20 years.

There are many organizations working to make the world a better place for elephants, such as Save Elephant Foundation, Elephants in Japan, World Animal Protection, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and the World Wildlife Fund.

The responsibility of protecting wild animals and their natural habitat falls on all of our shoulders. To learn about how you can help elephants, click here and here.

Funny and sad at the same time. I just hope nothing happened to them for acting aggressive. Animals that have done less have been killed. I agree with Nolan, in that humans, sadly, have the power over animals; signs of aggression means that they can\'t be around tourists, so now what? I wish this sort of tourism didn\'t exist, period.

I concur! Stop harassing elephants and other wildlife. Block off all roads in elephant territory, for the safety of the elephants and for the people.

Poor animals...pushed to defend themselves and their space like this. Humans need to leave them alone and leave them enough room to live.

I loved this! I agree =humans are taking over their homes and then wonder why the elephants are a "problem". Such self centeredness and entitlement are appalling. I wouldn\'t want people doing this in my home and neither do they. Bravo to the elephants . Sdlay too many people are so stupid they won\'t get it.

I LOVE WATCHING VIDEO WHEN ANIMALS GET EVEN WITH DUMB TOURISTS, TROPHY HUNTERS/POACHERS.

If all the animals in the world turned on the humans who have abused them wouldn\'t it be great. These brave low lives with their guns who have abused them for so long, if only!

No it would not be great! People are more powerful than the animals and people would win sadly to the detriment of the animals. Many animals would lose their lives.

It\'s like fighting off a hoard of mosquitoes, what chance do elephants have against hoards of human encroachment, referred to as tourists. Wildlife habitat, wildlife\'s homes being sold off as \'tourist attractions\' for Government\'s greed. After everything else this is the final assault on wildlife being allowed to exist & it cant be stopped. Human population is steadily increasing.

I don\'t blame the elephants one bit! They have been harassed, brutalized, and killed, unnecessarily for far too long!!

I love it. Isn\'t it amazing when the "shoe is on the other foot". Those animals weight is measured in tons, just like the cars they are knocking around. And, as some found out, they can move pretty quickly for the giant creatures they are.
