As Jacob approaches the campsite, I signal him to back his truck into the space next to the holding cage. He is driving his maroon Ford F-150 with a Texas A&M decal on the back window. Dressed in the same veterinarian outfit as this morning, he opens his door and greets the team.
“Howdy boys! You sure are way back here away from everyone. Thought I’d never find ya’.” (The lioness lets out an angry growl.) ” Damn Chuck! Look at that! It sure didn’t take you fellas’ very long to find your lions!” walking closer to the cage. The lioness has him in a “death stare” and is crouching as if to attack. Jacob backs up two steps. “Damn!”
“Howdy to you Jacob. Frightening, isn’t she? She’s for sure one of the three killers, and we saw the other two real close.”
