Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 43: Verses 1-14
The elephant Kuvalayapida killed (by the Lord)
Sri Suka began again Having finished Their bath etc., the next day, and hearing the loud noise of the wrestlers and the din of kettledrums, 0 chastiser of foes, Sri Krsna and Balarama went to see the tournament. Having duly reached the entrance of the
amphitheatre, Sri Krsna saw stationed there the elephant Kuvalayapida as directed by its driver. Tightening the cloth round His waist (by way of preparation for an encounter) and tying up His curly locks, Sri Krsna (a scion of Surea) challenged the keeper (as follows) in a voice deep as the rumbling of clouds:- "0 driver, 0 driver ! allow us passage; clear out without delay. If not, I shall presently despatch you alongwith the elephant to the abode of Death." Threatened thus, the driver full of rage goaded the elephant-which had (already) been enraged and which looked like Yama (the chastiser of beings subject to the ravages of Time)- towards Sri Krsna. Running towards Him, the lordly elephant quickly seized Sri Krsna with its trunk. He (however) slipped off from (the coils of) the trunk and, striking it (with His fist), disappeared in the midst of its legs. Failing to perceive Sri Krsna (the Ruler even of Brahma and Lord Siva), the infuriated animal, which could discover things through scent, caught hold of the Lord with the end of its trunk. He (however) forcibly escaped from its hold.
