- n. A tame female elephant used as a decoy in the capture of wild male elephants.
This was Kinka, a gentle and tractable, little Indian elephant, who was well versed in the chase, and who was about as pretty and graceful as it is possible for a _koomkie_ to be.
He did not care for society in any shape or form, not even the society of a _koomkie_, so he took no notice of her, but, after a few minutes 'quiet contemplation, turned his head the other way.
