The jaguar - its habitat stolen by the progress of Homo sapiens - creeps onto a farm. Kills and eats a calf to survive.

Human beings are united in outrage. Pest is promptly hunted down, shot without either contemplation or penalty.

Can't let one of those beasts slaughter one of our beasts, right? Nope...that's our fuckin' job.

It's our job to destroy rainforests so that cow has room to get fat.

Our job to slit that cow's throat, eat it, and get fat ourselves.

Our job to search the Internet for pictures and videos of cute babies and kittens and pretend none of this is happening.

Pretend we haven't fucked up everything we've touched.
