Megan Milan’s encounter with a frisky baby elephant at a sanctuary in Thailand goes viral, as his sister intervenes to stop his antics. The model and humanitarian’s social media followers were entertained by her experience with a friendly family of elephants, particularly the moment when the three-week-old baby elephant attempted to hump her while she tried to escape his advances.
The video, which has now gone viral, has been viewed over 20 million times on TikTok.
Megan’s laughing only makes her escape more difficult, but thankfully the baby’s sister is on hand to come and stop her brother from messing around.
Speaking to NTK, she said: “I had never seen a three-week-old elephant and they told me there was one.
“I begged to go see him, so they took me to the fields where they were.
“As soon as the baby saw me, he wanted to play. Funny thing is, he only wanted to play with me!
“I have a strong connection with animals and nature so I wasn’t afraid. I know elephants have empathy, as do I.
“He was definitely heavy and rough and I wouldn’t advise this for everyone.”
Thousands of people have commented on the clip, with many suggesting the elephant wanted to do a little more than just play.
“You thought it was going to be sweet. He had other plans,” wrote one, while another said, “He want youuu.”
A third commented: “The way he was dragging his knees on you PLEASE.”
Although she had a bit of a tumble, the travel influencer highly recommends the sanctuary, which looks after rescued elephants while also supporting women at risk of human trafficking.
“I’m so glad my video was able to put smiles and laughter on so many peoples faces,” she said.

“These [causes] are two things that I am extremely passionate about so of course I jumped at the opportunity.
“The staff were amazing, the owners are the sweetest people you can meet with the biggest hearts, and the elephants have so much personality.
“They are able to roam freely and are treated the best I’ve ever seen.”
