Elephant attacks man who posed for selfie with it; puts him in a critical condition


A man is battling for his life in hospital after an elephant attacked him when he posed for a selfie with the animal in Tanzania.

The elephant was part of a herd that escaped a conservation area in the northern Manyara region and was eating farm crops in one of the villages, according to authorities.

A regional police commissioner said the elephants became agitated after a group of locals approached them while taking selfies. It attacked one of the men, wounding him.

‘The man has been admitted at Kiteto district hospital and is undergoing treatment…He has had some improvement,’ said George Katabazi.

Human-wildlife conflict is common in Tanzania, where dry periods often lead to wildlife straying onto farms for food.
