Former actor and governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger was chased by an elephant in South Africa -- and he shared the horrifying moments online.

Simultaneously, he condemned hunting for ivory, writing on Facebook , "We need to stop killing them - take a photo, not a shot.”

Entertainment Weekly explains that the incident occurred during a safari, while he was on a visit to South Africa over Memorial Day weekend.

Soon enough, Schwarzenegger and his group had a brush with danger as they came across a large elephant blocking the path of their vehicle.

The “Terminator” actor explained of the incident, “I couldn’t have written this safari encounter better if it was a movie. I’m absolutely in awe of these beautiful, strong animals, even though some of us had to change our pants after this.”
