Rainsford proceeds to make a fox trail to try and throw General Zarrof off of his path. Not falling for it the general sees him but starts potting with him by letting him go. Then Rainsford makes a trap hurting general Zarrof.
Rainsford built a “man catcher” that kills Ivan in the process. And then proceeded to build a tiger pit killing one of General Zarofs best dog.
Rainsford decides to run instead of fight back. He leaps into the ocean and swims away.
