How to Survive an Elephant Charge...and Ultrarunning

Courtesy of the way cool site Boing Boing, we learn what to do and what not to do when faced with a charging elephant:

Your choices are:

  1. Run between its legs
  2. Turn and run away
  3. Scream and yell

Were you correct?

This is especially for our Ultrarunning buddies in Africa and southeast Asia.  As for me, living as I do in North American where elephants are not endemic, I doubt I'll need this specific advice...although it's also appropriate strategy for dogs, bears and mountain lions, etc. 

In short, any menacing critter.
