A couple, mid-jog at a national park in Thailand, got more than they bargained for when they stopped and tried to take a selfie with an elephant.

The massive elephant started chasing the couple in their attempt to get a photo with the pachyderm.

In a series of photos, the enraged elephant was seen chasing the duo. Another park visitor, Kamron Petprayoon, shot the crazy pics.

“I stopped my car and took photos of the elephant. Drivers of vehicles that followed me along the road spotted it also and refused to drive past it. So I led them past the elephant which appeared to pay no attention to us,” he wrote.

Luckily, the couple managed to escape injury.
