DOG OF THE JUNGLE ~ 1933.12.10
Basim, the wild dog of the jungle, was on a hunt. When he picked up the spoor of Tarzan and the horse, he raced for the spot where the horse was tethered. The next second Tarzan heard the horse's wild shriek. Even as the dog jumped for the horse's throat, the ape-man hurled himself on the horse's back. Tarzan hurled Basim aside and cut the horse's tether with a swift slash of his knife. He gave the horse free rein as it fled in terror but Basim, relentless in the hunt, came on in hot pursuit. 

They had reached the edge of the desert when the wild dog leaped to attack Tarzan. The ape-man slashed at Basim, then suddenly reined in and leaped for his assailant. In a flash the horse was off across the desert toward his home among the Ibeks, and Tarzan faced Basim, slayer of lions. Short was the encounter. The ape-man caught the great dog by the throat and applied steely pressure. Shouting the bull-ape victory cry, Tarzan swung back through the trees to rejoin Nikotris and Hotep. But when he returned, the queen and the boy had disappeared! What dread fate had overtaken them, left unguarded in the thick of the jungle?
