From the book:
"I stood to stand her, and threw up my rifle to fireside at her head as she got here on, at a short run, with no elevating her trunk or uttering a legitimate, realising in a second that this used to be the one factor to do, so brief used to be the gap keeping apart us. the press of the striker used to be the single 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 right away that my case was once basically hopeless. The enraged elephant was once through this time inside a number of strides of me; the slender 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 used to be all i'll do, the elephant overhauling me at each step. As I ran these few yards I made one spasmodic try and paintings the mechanism of the treacherous journal, and, pointing the muzzle at the back of me with out taking 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 proper and threw myself down between a few brushwood within the useless desire that she may perhaps cross on. yet she used to be too shut; and, turning with me like a terrier after a rabbit, she was once 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 via brushwood. Kneeling over me (but thankfully now not touching me together with her legs, which needs to, i guess, were on either side of mine), she made 3 detailed lunges at me, sending her left tusk during the biceps of my correct arm and stabbing me among the fitting ribs, while 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 similar part. 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 pores and skin off different spots, and that i suggestion my head will be beaten, however it slipped again and used to be no longer touched back. i used to be considering on the time how she might kill me; for after all I by no means idea something yet that the tip of my looking used to be come at last..."
