Elephant takes down tree.
By - Pedrica1
Imagine cutting a tree down with your NOSE
*Woody the Woodpecker had entered the chat*
Beavers are following... and curious of this black magic.
That’s one way to get your frisbee down.
Wish I had him with me at my last round of disc golf.
I think he sensed the tree was half dead and put it out it’s misery.
Noted fact. Humans and elephants are the only 2 animals that destroy their own habitat just for the fuck of it.
That elephant had a perfect reason.
"Road's closed loser, go home."
TIL Elephants are assholes.
His cousin is Smokey the Bear. Tree was dead, and only you big animals can prevent fires!
Some would argue that elephants help there environment as a whole, thses creatures help to keep grasslands that way by taking down trees. They also make divits in the ground that water collects in as well as act as nutrient transports. Granted they do this most likely as a by product of survival but it has opened up a nitch for other animals to thrive in.
Elephants take down trees to eat the leafs.
And your out here bullying a damn elephant.
That tree had no leafs…
This is a Marula tree. Looks too dry to have any fruit that he’s trying to shake down, so could be after the roots too. Lots of moisture in a Marula’s roots in the winter
The elephant didn’t count on the tree snapping at the bottom.. his buddy like, idiot you pushed it to high 😂
But, as you can see, the rest of trees were green.
I can see some green on what looks like mainly Guarri bushes which will always stay green. The elephant will rather go through the effort of uprooting this tree for roots and bark than eat non nutritious greenery that is left
They also eat tree bark.
Tree bark is hard like coconut. Or like other nuts. And it's the part where all the nutrients are stored before going to the top of the tree.
Oh see that’s more info, I like it!!! Timber mathasuckers… lol
"Because I can"
Beavers do this.
The tree was probably diseased and died, and the elephant knew it was time to remove it. You just don't leave the dead in the same place where they passed away.
Why did this thicc boi do this?
To block the road, so he can rob the buses full of tourists.
“Quick! Cross the river! Now we’re being robbed!”
Well, animals are a lot like people, Mrs. Simpson. Some of them act badly because they’ve had a hard life or have been mistreated. But, like people, some of them are just jerks. Stop that, Mr. Simpson.
To flex on those bitch asses
Happy cake day
Maybe to get the leaves at the top to eat?
I don't see many leaves on that tree. My guess is he blocked the road with the tree so the other elephants could cross safely.
Probably this. Elephants are smart as hell.
I’m going with this.
No way lol. Definitely for the food
That actually makes sense that could be why
My first thought was "Those trees in the back look way more tasty" lol.
That’s what we were told when we visited East Africa. And we learned this eventually turns moist shady forest into dry grassy savanna.
Highway robbery ofcourse.
It was leg day
Now I can finally get my frisbee
Everyone's asking "why?" as if you wouldn't do this *constantly* if you had the ability...
How to say “you shall not pass” without actually saying it
Anyone else Was scared that tree was gonna splinter and elephant get underbelly full of tree ?
Or that he was going to get his trunk stuck in the fork.
Fuck your road
Felt cute, might take down some trees later, idk
I am the proud and resilient, african plains tree. I stand tall… hey what are doing? Stop that! O dear god!
To eat them.
War elephants must’ve been so fucking scary
Cause fuck trees thats why
Part of their plan to rob the next stagecoach.
Now yous can't leave
Now yous can't leaf
Hey it’s Barts elephant Stampy in real life.
"You know what..? Fuck this tree!" -The Elephant
"This tree SPECIFICALLY!"
"And fuck this road! You wanna drive on this road? Fuck you!"
Forestry maintenance ranger right there.
He's tending his garden, everyone go tend your own.
Yeah that tree looked half dead already.
It’s setting up a roadblock to ambush the next truck of produce that passes by.
One minute silence for the people who run away from elephant and climb that tree
Fck this tree in particular
things they teach in elephant school
Omg dude. I’m like “there ain’t no way that mfer is ending that big ass tree” fuck if he didn’t snap the bitch.
The scientific community isn’t sure either…see https://www.researchgate.net/publication/288395221_Why_do_elephants_damage_savanna_trees
That strut after it comes down...
Got the "My work here is done" vibe to it right?
Nature's hoodlums. Do not. I repeat. Do not introduce them to spray paints.
First I thought ‘he’ was shaking it for fruit, but it was a very intentional follow through when he saw the trunk giving way. Like the fellow elephant wandering over to join the buffet at the end!
Their walk is so deceivingly slow.
I heard elephants just smash things for reasons no one understands. I guess this is an example?
What a flex, I feel that energy.
Put it in the road. What a bad ass.
I think it was tired of people driving through its yard…
I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok.
That tree was all bark and no bite.
COMFIRMED: ELEPHANTS HATE NATURE
Years ago I was camping (border of South Africa and Zimbabwe) and in the middle of the night an elephant pushed a tree over snapping the trunk. We all woke up shitting our selves, it was so loud we thought it was boarder guards having a shootout with someone
His 3 other elephant friends are robbing a bank on the other side of town... This is just a distraction
So cool to see an animal that big *really* put their back into it.
Elephant: “fuck this tree in particular.”
Damn, imagine being a bird whose nest was up there.
Thanks dad, but my kite is in the other tree
Why he do this though
That elephant wasn't a fan of the road and wanted his buddies to cross safely so put a tree on the road thats a big brain elephant move.
"You shall not pass!"
Did he want to block the street?
You shall not pass!
Elephant said , you shall not pass
Maybe he doesn’t like the folks driving on that road?
I just love it.. Never seen so elegant destruction.. i believe the nesting birds would think otherwise.. but F them, there's more trees nearby.
Psht, pussy ass elephant didn’t even uproot it
Now pay in ADA
Vah Ruta irl
Fuck you tree
Fuck you stupid tree.
Human brain: It is wild animal who broke a tree, respect it's personal space.
Monkey brain : Elepuppy!!!! Needs snuggles..
Human brain : No it doesn't.
Monkey brain: ... Snuggle?
I think you have them backwards.
Absolute menace to society. “Some men just wanna watch the world burn”
What a dick head
Yes, video. It's ready

Humans: Damn, a thunderstorm must have happened here last night.
Elephant last night:
He did that to block the human road of poachers and tourists with their fucking iPhone cameras
Did he have to drop it right in the road?! How inconvenient lol.
he ain't a tree hugger that's for sure
His frisbee must have gotten stuck
This seems like it took more energy than it would get from those leaves
We worry so much about humans deforesting the rainforests, but we ignore this shiz.
YOU'RE so brave - YOU talk to him!
Blocking the road, fuckin humans
Note to self: Elephants included in the list of “don’t climb a tree if being followed by” alongside bears.
That elephant had a plan.
If they don't name him Gandalf, I'm disappointed.
Elephant: fuck that tree!
Fuck you tree!
Horse power sucks, need elephant power.
Humans: hold my coffee
I do wonder if we are All here to dissolve mater. In the way of throwing down trees, chewing and excreting.
It looks like the fruits wouldn’t come down, so…..also, that is not a healthy tree.
This is how the prehistoric forests of Africa turned into the Savannahs we have today.
Large Elephantids trampling smaller younger trees, and tearing down larger older trees to make room for the smaller brush that they want to eat.
That’s a fun game :)
And this proves that they are smart creatures. How many of you, if you were a elephant, would do the same as that guy?
The trap is set
yup, and it's time to leave
Full grown birch got assassinated by tusks, the only second thing to ever kill a birch is a venomous snake according to tales and ranger gord.
That’s my boy Steve
ok, NOW it's safe to cross.
Elephant: I’m bored today- I think I will knock this tree down!
Cars honk horns at elephant !
Elephant gets revenge😂
Thatll get those damn teenagers to stop driving so fast
Looks like he's saying, stay the fuck out of my neighbourhood
Fuck yo tree, nigga. buy another rich ass mother fucker
Tree was blocking his view
You. Shall not. Pass!
When the road is too noisy
None shall pass!!!
(In hank hill voice) Damn it Babar!
He woke up that day and chose violence
"Yah Bill this is the one. Way too dangerous. Its gotta come down" -that elephant probably
We already have problem with fixing global warming and now these long nosed bastards make it even worse
So he just left it in the middle of the road, he must not paid attention in school to properly take down a dead tree
Wasn't there like a questionaire where a lot of Americans thought they could take an elephant while unarmed? - I feel they should see this video first
Is he establishing dominance, or just releasing energy 😂
This elephant is gearing up to rob the pony express.
In an alternate universe humans never developed machine skills. Instead we evolved spiritually and developed telepathy with animals. And we use elephants as lumber jacks
“Yep…. I just blocked that fucking road bitch “
Its a trap!
Today I learned that elephants are strong
Roads closed pizza boi, Find another way home
"Fuck this tree in particular"
Lol why he so mad at the tree
Tree had it coming.
Spank that elephant and make sure it understands that is unacceptable behavior!
"Elephants hate tourist safari SUVs: Here we see a large bull elephant, breaking down a tree, pushing it into the road to block traffic."
That tree pissed him off
*Honey, you promised to have that tree removed last month. You think you can get it done today?*
Who needs a chainsaw when you could have an elephant?
Learn this one trick lumberjacks don't want YOU to know!
What tf did that tree do to him?
Even the elephants are trying to manipulate the environment for money, just doesn't know how to mass produce paper yet
Elephant's like "Screw you Tourists! " and blocks the road
I don’t want this tree in my living room
Maybe he was trying to block the road?
Good, that tree was an asshole anyway.
He was just craving some tree 🍃 🍃 🍃
Elephant: “where u gonna drive now hUmAn?”
There was a sugarcane truck passing through everyday at 11:05 so the elephants ganged up to create an aversion and steal the canes.
I always imagined that if I was in a bad situation where I needed to run from an elephant I would just run up a tree. I’m realizing now that there’s no escaping an elephant in the wild
Showing off for some ladies in the background. "See how I tore up that T?!, Now, let me hit that P!"
Tree must have really pissed off Mr. Elephant...
Who dah trunk it
