It seems the two French hunting clients, Monique and Henri Germain, plus their South African booking agent, Jean Peroni, were returning to camp with PH John Knowles when one of the trackers spotted fresh buffalo dung in the roadway. Knowles immediately stopped, and the tracker, John Njobvu, jumped out to investigate. When he did, he saw the buffalo just off the roadway in some bushes. He crouched down and motioned for Knowles and the hunter to come forward. Since Henri had already shot his buffalo, he helped his wife dismount, chambered a round in her rifle and handed it to her, with the safety engaged and with a whispered warning that the gun was loaded. Shortly afterward, as she moved up along the side of the car, a shot rang out, followed by a loud cry from Monique, "I've killed him!" Walker says everyone immediately looked toward the buffalo, expecting to see one on the ground. Instead, to everyone's horror, they saw John Njobvu on the ground, dead almost instantly with a .375 round having passed from the point of one shoulder almost through his entire upper chest before exiting near his other shoulder blade.
