Korak stops for a visit with the mangani tribe of Gorlak, and finds that Ogla was attacked and had her baby stolen by men. Korak follows the trail to Trader Gorbeau's stockade, where he finds the balu and also a tongani chained in the yard. The son of Tarzan boldly enters the warehouse and discovers a horde of illegal ivory. Corbeau has men sneak up from behind and slam a long crate over Korak's upper body. Korak splinters it, but buried amid the sudden heap of black bodies he is knocked out by a blow from the rear. Corbeau decides to have Korak battle the baboon for bets that night. However, Korak talks to the ape and makes friends, calling his apecry for a tantor who has also lost her baby to the hunters. She brings the whole herd and destroys the pallisade, driving the poachers in every direction into the woods to escape. There they meet the bulls of Gorlak's tribe who have mustered the courage to come to Korak's aid. Tantor pulls up the stakes but cannot break the chains of the captives. Korak commands Gorlak to bring the body of Corbeau to see if it has the keys. Korak realizes that Gorlak is still alive, and warns him to play dead. After all the captives are freed and have gone back to the jungle, Korak warns Corbeau to get out and stay out. Later, hearing a scream, Korak returns to the shattered compound on tantor, and finds that Long Fang, the baboon, has finished Corbeau. Korak does not mourn.
