The elephant's destruction began with a bamboo hut in the bazaar. The text says nothing about Orwell's "well-to-do" European section of town.
It had already destroyed somebody's bamboo hut, killed a cow and raided some fruit-stalls and devoured the stock; also it had met the municipal rubbish van and, when the driver jumped out and took to his heels, had turned the van over and inflicted violences upon it.
