LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Forget Jurassic Park. Welcome to "Giraffic Park."

Imagine being on an African safari, when suddenly you're chased by a giraffe.

The couple says the giraffe started chasing the Jeep and kept at it for three miles. The animal finally stopped after yelling and the park ranger beating on the car.

And the video has gone viral.

Some are asking: Why is she panicking? What is the giraffe going to do?

Well, giraffes can fight using their necks as clubs -- and the attacks can appear brutal.
