Interesting. I know they are capable of kicking a lion to death if calves are threatened. Not sure of all the sound effects on the tape.

No I donít think they charge on purpose, only away !

We shot a good size Bull today with a arrow from 30yds, he & the rest of the herd only charged off !

Last year in Zim, a Giraffe walked across a 20-acre clearing to get a better view of us working on an Eland. It stood behind a tree at about 20 yards and watched for a couple of minutes,_crazy!

Any wild animal or even domestic animal might charge. Even if rarely.

Got charged by a big fat Eastern Groundhog (Marmota Monax) once. That did not end well for him. LOL

I had two Kiwis - the actual birds - banzai charged me. Ran over my feet and kept going. Though I was going to be in for the fight of my life

Just watched the actual video and there are no noises from the Giraffe.
