A stampede is an act of mass impulse among herd animals or a crowd of people in which the herd (or crowd) collectively begins running with no clear direction or purpose. Stampedes are believed to originate from biological responses in the brains and endocrine systems of herd animals. The response is believed to have evolved to help animals escape predators.

Associated with stampede behaviour are animals like humans, cattle, elephants, Blue Wildebeests, wild horses, and Rhinoceros.
