    A little girl in a sleeveless yellow top took on a giant elephant, appearing to control the behemoth with one small hand on a Sri Lankan street, according to viral video making the rounds on social media. 

    In the 23-second video posted to YouTube the girl is filmed walking barefoot on a street in the direction of an elephant that apparently had just come out of some brush.

    The elephant walks toward the girl, who puts her right arm up as if to say, "Stop." 

    The elephant stops in its tracks. As the girl walks toward it, her arm still outstretched, the animal slowly backs up. The girl keeps walking in its direction and the elephant continues to back up, then sidesteps and flees back into the brush from whence it came.
