An unidentified man is wanted by the Kazakhstan police after climbing a fence at a zoo and jumping onto the back of a giraffe.

A clip of the incident, which took place at the Shymkent Zoo in Kazakhstan, has since gone viral.

In the clip, the visitor can be seen climbing a fence in an attempt to get onto the giraffes back.

The visitor, who’s believed to have been drunk at the time of the incident, successfully manages to get on the animal’s back. He remains there for a while and can be seen stroking the giraffe’s neck. 

The majestic animal then suddenly gets spooked and dashes forward, throwing his passenger off its back.

In the last seconds of the footage, the giraffe can be seen coming back towards the scared man and he then quickly scrambles over the fence where he escaped before he could be arrested.

Local media said the man had been drunk at the time.

Police confirmed they’re trying to identify the man who faces arrest over the stunt.
