On the houseboat, Athol has decided to head back out onto the lake to fish. But then the elephants return and for Don the temptation to get more photos is too great. Don creeps closer to get the perfect picture. The herd don't appear to have noticed him, but elephants have a super-sense that may already have altered them that he is there. A young bull in the group turns to challenge him. But he's so concentrated, he misses the warning signs that could save his life. Don is then attacked by the elephant. He has taken a tusk through the groin. But it is the impact of the elephant's head on his chest that stops his heart and kills him instantly.
