The next example of iron is when General Zaroff reveals his unnerving secret: he hunts humans! Rainsford says, “Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder,” with disgust thickening his tone (13). This is suppose to catch the reader by surprise. In the middle of “The Most Dangerous Game” Zaroff
He felt that killing him himself was the right thing as Lennie was his responsibility and if he didn’t, he would get tortured by the other ranch workers. This was similar to Carlson killing candy’s dog, when candy then afterwards realised he should’ve done it himself. Killing Lennie was a hard and distressing thing for George to do as it says, “The hand shook violently”, maybe showing regret or even determination to get it over and done with.

While we were aware of our intentions to murder an innocent animal, we felt the remorseful and somewhat regretful after the deed was done. Prior to this experience I realize that I do not have the hunting mentality as Bass does. He knows he is aware that he is a predator and lives to hunt and eat the meat of his prey, just as a natural predator does. I, on the other hand, like to eat meat and would rather not think of the animal that had to be killed in order to get it.

If you are being hunted like an animal in an unknown jungle do you flee or come back to kill?

One portion of the land is the same as the next, for he is a stranger who comes in the night and takes from the land whatever he needs.
