Their spears were then thrown in a corner of the house suffering the wrongs of oblivion and pain.
Pataki where the hunter revealed his power and thus took revenge
One day the man could no longer bear his condition and decided to go to other distant lands to continue to carry out the extermination of elephants, a fact that gave him great pleasure.
After a long walk, he ran into the oldest of the elephants, who, blinded by the years, was soaking in a pond.
Without thinking, he launched one of his arrows, granting him the misfortune of suffering imminent death.
When the news reached the ears of the elephant's daughter, she asked orunmila the opportunity to become a beautiful young woman and thus be able to avenge the death of her father, a request to which the Ifá oracle promptly agreed.

She asked him what his job was, to which the ruthless man replied:

Who spared his life for the simple fact of having ignored his presence, luck with which his father had not suffered, who had perished on the spot.
When vanity and pride reign, reason is clouded
to the mañaThe following day, when the young woman was about to leave, the hunter interrupted her, preventing her from leaving the house and, failing that, he proposed that she marry him because they were both alone in the world and in this way they would keep each other company.
From that moment they began to live together.
- One night the young woman asked the hunter what was his secret to defeat an elephant, this swollen with pride confessed all his tricks.
During the night the beautiful young woman left the cabaña and went into the forest taking its original form.
When the man woke up, he desperately went looking for her and instead found an elephant, he drew his spear to attack her, but in the blink of an eye the elephant's daughter had annihilated him using her own tricks, managing to avenge her father.
