Czech (Dr. Kenneth) An annotated Bibliography of African Big Game hunting Books, 1785 to 1950, page 160, ‘One of the true classics of African big-game hunting, this work recounts the author’s elephant hunting exploits primarily along the Luwegu River in German East Africa, and the Loceringo River in Portuguese East Africa. In addition, there are encounters with rhinoceros, man-eating lion, leopard, and a variety of plains game. During one elephant stalk, Sutherland’s little terrier, Whiskey, survived being thrown into the bush by an enraged pachyderm.’
