Suddenly the pups disappeared into the dense lantana. At first it appeared that it was our presence that disturbed the pack. Then it became apparent that the reason for the disturbance was not us but a huge male gaur.
At first as the bull advanced the dogs held their ground, even making mock attacks.
The bull wasn't deterred. It was intent on crossing over despite the snapping dogs.
He just charged through the pack scattering the dogs before him.
Once he had waded through the pack and reached the jeep track he halted as if to show that he had not run in fear.
After a minute he crossed the track towards the dense lantana bordering the road.
