As he approached the door he noticed Fisi, the warden's pet hyena, coming toward him excitedly. Tommy thought the animal was happy to see him home, but for reasons known only to the hyena-perhaps because of the scly dry day and there was a massive cloud of dust when the shooting started. Pandemonium followed in the poor visibility and Tommy found himself on the same flank as Perry, shooting for all he was worth. He missed a target and started to follow the unfortunate beast, which was set to break out of the cordon. He took his eye off the rest of the herd and suddenly felt as though he had been hit in the back by a train. Tommy found himself hoisted high in the air, dangling head down, impaled on an elephant's tusk. Again he felt terribly embarrassed. Both Loach and Clouger would be watching but he was sure it would not be long before he was in the arms of the Lord.
