Watching a giraffe if you have never seen one before can get exciting. But a drunk man's excitement level crossed all limits recently at the Shymket zoo in Kazakhstan. A man was captured on video climbing up on the fence of the giraffe enclosure and trying to get a ride by sitting on the long neck of the animal. The giraffe although was gentle at first, eventually tossed the man to the ground. The video footage of this bizarre stunt is since then going viral online.

Police are now on a hunt for this drunk visitor. In the video, the giraffe is seen standing close to the fence and the man begins to climb. The man somehow scrambled to reach the top of the fence and began stroking the animal's neck. The man did not stop there, he then crossed over the fence and landed on the giraffe's neck. The giraffe probably realised the ruckus this intruder was going to cause him and as he walked away, dashed the man away from its back! The man is then seen scrambling on the fence to make an escape.
