Original text on this topic:
source of the Ambo, 2 ? hours from Merdibba. In the evening, when setting up camp, we saw a rhinoceros, which calmly looked into the fire. I shot six bulklets at it which hit the thick skull, and the animal disappeared.
The next day, I sent people to look for the rhinoceros, but they said that they lost its tracks in the Gira. I doubt the truth of this, especially because a few days later some people offered a fresh horn to me for sale, which was just about as big as that of the animal which I had wounded.
