A viral video circulating on X (formerly Twitter) has reignited outrage over human-animal conflicts. Shared by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan, the footage depicts a disturbing incident of men attempting to intimidate an elephant using slippers in Assam, raising significant concerns about human-wildlife interactions.

In the video, a group of men stands below an elephant perched on elevated ground, trying to scare it away by waving slippers. The tension escalates as more individuals join in the misguided attempt. However, the situation quickly intensifies as the elephant charges toward the group, prompting a retreat before the video ends.

Mr. Kaswan accompanied the video with a strong message: “Identify the real animal here. Then these giants charge and we call them killers. Don’t ever do this, it’s life-threatening. Video is from Assam.”
