First place 3 gateways as if you were forming a box but slightly bigger for the Paraceratherium to fit.

Head inside the unfinished box and start shooting at the Paraceratherium in order to draw it towards you but make sure to get it to follow the path leading into the box.

Once the Paraceratherium is inside the box, run around and place the fourth gateway to block off its exit.
