Click here to hear the author read his words:
I have to guide the hunting party which is being organised by Sir William Harrington-Smythe, the most important man in the region, owner of the largest company that is destroying our land.
He says the hunt is for the protection of his employees, and the villagers, but I think he just likes to kill things because he, or rather his company, has already killed pretty much everything that grew on the lower slopes of the mountains, leaving only a high, narrow band of trees, and above them just gorse and rocks.
The disappearance of their natural habitat is clearly why the animals are scavenging around the villages, occasionally taking a child, while the company people are, of course, safe within their gated communities.
Since there is almost no forest, there is no real need for a guide, but Sir William likes to pretend that he is the intrepid leader of a dangerous expedition.
So I will guide them, very carefully, letting them see wild boar and, perhaps, a wolf, but staying well away from the area where the big cats still roam free.
There are billions of children in the world, and so few Bengal Tigers.
