A Thai man who was attacked by a giraffe has told the media what happened on Monday at Khon Kaen zoo.
He was calling out: “Giraffe, giraffe”.
He tried to touch the creature that responded with a swift head-butt-cum-swipe to the shoulder.
Surakij – who posted a video of his experience on Facebook – was not seriously hurt and harbored no ill feelings to the giraffe saying he likes animals.
Smiling broadly he advised people not to get too close and admitted that he had probably annoyed the animal when it was trying to feed itself grass.
The zoo authorities reminded the public to follow the signs and advice of park staff at all times.
The story was aired on national TV.
