Ferol went in to invite a friend to track down the deer. Sanrosh with regret rejected the invitation - he was waiting for his lawyer, who was about to go on business. Ferol went alone.

When they met in a narrow valley between two slopes, the landowner saw that Ferol's dress was torn and covered with mud and stains, similar to blood. The king told Sanroch about the startling incident he had experienced in the forest. The hunter had to walk around the forest for a long time before he saw a group of deer not far off. Get close to them closer to make a shot, he did not succeed. In the end, pursuing them, he went into the thicket and felt that it would take a long time for the return journey. Turning home, Ferol suddenly heard an eerie growl, heard from a damp, fern-overgrown ravine. Slowly backing away and not taking his eyes off the place, the hunter, step by step, overcame about fifty meters, when a huge wolf jumped out of the ravine and rushed straight at him. Ferol prepared for the shot, but stumbled - his boot fell under the root - and the shot did not hit the target. The wolf with a wild roar jumped on the hunter, trying to cling to his throat. Ferol had a good reaction - he hit the beast with the butt, and he fell to the ground. Almost immediately the wolf jumped up again. Ferol managed to snatch the hunting knife and bravely stepped forward to meet the jumping beast. They met in a deadly battle. But the second respite and experience helped the hunter, he managed to wind the cloak on his left hand and put it in the mouth of the beast. While he vainly tried to reach his hand with his sharp fangs, Ferol struck with daggers, trying to cut the animal's throat. The hunting dagger of Ferol with a wide blade as sharp as a razor, with a huge grip, was almost as heavy as a small hatchet. The man and beast fell to the ground and in a furious duel they rolled on the leaves. At some point they were at the fallen tree, and the paw of the beast, who was fiercely looking at the hunter with bloodshot eyes, caught on to the clumsy trunk. At the same moment, Ferol hit her with a knife and cut the flesh, tendons and bone with a sharp blade. The wolf howled eerily and sadly, and, escaping from the embrace of the hunter, limping, ran away. Friends slowly walked and finally entered the garden of Sanroche. Ferol pointed to his sack. "I took the paw of the beast with me," he said, "so you can make sure of the truthfulness of my story." He leaned over the sack, standing with his back to his friend, so that Sanroche could not immediately see what he was pulling. With a gasp, the hunter dropped something on the grass. He turned, and Sanrose was struck by his deathly pallor. "I do not understand anything," Ferol whispered, "because it was a wolf's paw!" . Sanrosh bent down, and horror also seized him: on the grass lay a freshly-chopped hand. His horror grew worse when he noticed several finger rings on the dead fine fingers. One of them, artfully made in the form of a spiral and adorned with blue topaz, he recognized. It was his wife's ring. Entering the bedroom of his wife, Sanrose found her lying in bed in a semi-conscious state. She was deadly pale. The sheets showed blood. The doctor called, and he was able to save the life of Madame Sanrosch by the elaborate treatment of the wound: the hand of her hand was severed.
