    If anybody wants to refresh his or her memory on how to hunt a giraffe with simple equipment, there's film. These guys didn't have horses, and the chase lasted several days while the poison took effect. I saw this in grad school (Anthropology) 40 years ago, and it wasn't fresh then. It also wasn't digital, in the 1970s they still used a movie projector. https://archive.org/details/huntersfilmpart1

    Two giraffe species (meaning proper giraffes) known as Giraffa priscilla and Giraffa sivalensis were found in the Siwalik Hills region of Pakistan and Western India.



    However, these species became extinct in South Asia before the arrival of modern day humans, so the the rock painting is most likely in reference to sivatherium.
