"When was it we came to adopt man into the jungle? Does my face not remind you of what a grown man can do?" the tiger shows the scars that blinded one of his eyes. He continues, "Shift your hunting ground for a few years, and everyone forgets how it all works. Well, let me remind you how it all works. The man-cub becomes man ... and man is forbidden!"
