When the trunk ended up in Alvin’s mouth, he burst out laughing.

Kenya is experiencing its worst drought in 40 years, killing over a thousand animals, including over 200 elephants.

512 wildebeests, 381 common zebras, 51 buffaloes, 49 Grevy’s zebras, and 12 giraffes are among the other creatures.

We must act quickly to halt the frightening rate of species extinction.

Experts have recommended supplying water and salt licks in impacted areas, particularly in Amboseli, Tsavo, and Laikipia Samburu.

What Was Alvin Kaunda’s Reaction To The Incident?

Reporter Alvin Kaunda later recounted the amusing incident,

saying he expected the elephants to be around but did not anticipate them to be that near to him.

It was his first time at the trust, and he wanted to have a good experience with the elephants.

He felt the elephant’s trunk brush against his back but chose to keep going because it was his tenth

take in front of the camera. Despite the fact that the trunk tickled him, he attempted to remain calm.

Alvin was convinced that nothing could stop him, but the creature’s cuteness weakened his resolve.

He went on to say that the trunk emitted no odor. He stated that he would have been if it had a bad odor.
