He is let in and meets Ivan and General Zaroff and is invited to dinner. The general tells Rainsford that he is also a hunter, but he got tired of hunting normal animals so he created a new one; a human. Rainsford is astonished and told the general that that is not hunting that is murder. The genral invites Rainsford to go hunting with him but he declines and goes to bed instead. The next day Rainsford asks to leave the island but the general says there is only one way.

Eventually the general brings out his pack of dogs and Ivan. I van gets killed by one of Rainsford's traps. The genral comes after Rainsford and Rainsford jumps into the ocean.
  • "Very deliberately he blew a smoke ring into the air; then he turned his back on the tree and walked carelessly away, back along the trail he had come. The swish of the underbrush against his hunting boots grew fainter and fainter."
  • Rainsford is now going to hunt General Zaroff.
