From the book:

"I stood to stand her, and threw up my rifle to fireplace at her head as she got here on, at a brief run, with no elevating her trunk or uttering a valid, realising in a second that this used to be the one factor to do, so brief was once the gap setting apart us. the clicking of the striker was once the one results of pulling the set off. No cartridge had entered the barrel on my operating the bolt after the final shot, even though the empty case had flown out! during this determined state of affairs I observed without delay that my case used to be basically hopeless. The enraged elephant used to be by means of this time inside a couple of strides of me; the slim direction used to be walled in on either side with thick scrub. to show and run down the trail in an instinctive attempt to flee was once all i may do, the elephant overhauling me at each step. As I ran these few yards I made one spasmodic try to paintings the mechanism of the treacherous journal, and, pointing the muzzle at the back of me with out having a look around, attempted it back; however it was once no pass. She used to be now all yet upon me. shedding the gun, I sprang out of the trail to the fitting and threw myself down between a few brushwood within the useless wish that she may well go on. yet she was once too shut; and, turning with me like a terrier after a rabbit, she used to be at the best of me once i used to be down. In falling I had became over directly to my again, and lay with my toes in the direction of the trail, face upwards, my head being propped up by means of brushwood. Kneeling over me (but thankfully now not touching me along with her legs, which needs to, i guess, were on both sides of mine), she made 3 distinctive lunges at me, sending her left tusk in the course of the biceps of my correct arm and stabbing me among the best ribs, whilst pounding my chest together with her head (or relatively, i guess, the thick a part of her trunk among the tusks) and crushing in my ribs at the related aspect. on the first butt a few a part of her head got here in touch with my face, barking my nostril and taking patches of epidermis off different spots, and that i inspiration my head will be beaten, however it slipped again and used to be now not touched back. i used to be brooding about on the time how she may kill me; for after all I by no means concept something yet that the tip of my looking was once come at last..."
