Description: 
Major Pretorius and elephant. [Shantz travel journal, Sep. 7, 1919]The density of the bush forces Major Pretorius to shoot elephants at 6 paces or less. It is terribly dangerous - but he is a dead shot and never fails - having shot as high as 9 elephants in one charge single handed. [Shantz travel journal, Sep. 9, 1919]
