We quickened ours accordingly. In about five minutes, its hind legs bent upon its body and then it slowly fell over sideways and lay on its side.

(a) What did they quicken and why?

Answer: They, the speaker’s team quickened their pace. They were following the injured elephant which had begun moving more quickly because it had been pricked by the dart.

Question 6: How did the vet treat the elephant?

Answer: The vet made a deep cut across the swollen part of the elephant’s leg. It brought out a flow of black blood. Then, he treated the leg, gave the animal a shot of long-acting antibiotic and bandages the leg, he also gave an antidote to the elephant which would revive it.

Question 7: As responsible managers, we should have stayed around for the movement of its revival. Do you think the speaker and his team were irresponsible? Why or why not?

Answer: No, the speaker and his team were not irresponsible. Although they wanted to stay around for the elephant’s revival, they could not have done that because there was no tree that was strong enough to support a machan where the team could spend the night. And it would have been very difficult to spend the night on the ground with about fifty wild elephants nearby.
