On the eight of June 1909, while a young trained calf was being bathed in a creek, a stay dog, said to be mad, was being chased by the villagers of Thabya-bin village. The dog ran towards the calf, on seing the naimal approaching, she got up and, as the dog was passing, made a charge. The dog sprang at the elephant, inflicting a severe bite under the left eye, and made off. [...] On the seventh (July) the animal appeared to regain strength, but about 10 AM. she went down, and started grovelling on the ground, and (as narrated) snapping at the air. She rapidly became exhausted and died at 1 PM.
