SUMMARY

The story is a sarcastic remark on the artificiality prevailing in modern ‘civilized’ society with the depiction of the event of tiger ‘hunting’ undertaken by ‘Nimrod’ like Mrs. Packletide.

Mrs. Packletide wishes to kill a tiger out of her jealousy for her bete noire, Miss LoonaBimberton’s recently achieved popularity.

She has the intention of killing two birds with the same stone by killing a tigergaining fame and humiliating Loona.

A manipulated tiger hunting expedition is arranged by the ‘commercial instinct’ villagers of a nearby village at the outskirt of which a tired, old, weak, domestic animal’s dependent tiger lives.

The artificial hunting exercise is given a natural look by involving over-anxious, money minded ‘paid companion’ Miss Louisa Mebbin.

On the destined day of hunting, Mrs. Packletide misfires the bullet which hits the bait (a high pitched bleating goat) which dies then and there; the targeted tiger also dies because of heart failure as it could not bear the sound of the bullet.

Villagers celebrate the killing of the tiger, but Miss Mebbin draws the attention of Mrs. Packletide towards the fact that the wrong animal is killed.

Mrs. Packletide believes that she can manage everyone by using his money power but she doesn’t know that she will have to pay heavily to her ‘paid companion’ to keep mum.

Miss Mebbin blackmails her and gets financial gains and is ultimately able to manage a week-end-cottage from her money.

Mrs. Packletide now avoids indulging herself in any new sports as she realises that ‘incidental’ expenses of such misadventures are very hard to bear.
