One reason is because they supposedly “poisoned a spring and an ox carcass near the central Utah town of Fillmore. ”11 After reading the book Massacre at Mountain Meadows, I now believe that it was a spore to have poisoned the spring and killed the ox around that time being transferred through meat to people, which would end up killing them. I understand that some of the men “threatened to join the incoming federal troops against the saints. ”12 One man even went as far as to claim, “he had a gun that killed Joseph Smith,”13 him being one of the men the Mormons most admired.

On the first day of the hunt, the reader is drawn into an initial comparison of the two scenes as the poet uses similar language to set up a description of the morning light of the two scenes. From here, a reader is inclined to continue a comparison, most notably that between Sir Gawain and the hunted deer. The hunter’s in Lord Bertilak’s party disturb the peaceful existence of the deer just as the entrance of the lady intrudes on Sir Gawain: “and while snoozing he heard a slyly made sound, the sigh of a door swinging slowly aside” (1182-1183). The lady’s forceful intrusion suggests that Sir Gawain is the prey that she intends to hunt. Further, the language suggests a predator-prey relationship, relating their encounter to that of a hunt: “she charmed him and she chased, but every move she made he countered” (1260-1262).

They are presented as demons, the embodiment of evil or are associated with the Devil.
In the poems “Traveling through the Dark” by William Stafford and “Woodchucks” by Maxine Kumin, two distinct speakers are portrayed by their contrasting approaches to the death of wild animals. “Traveling through the Dark” shows a thoughtful relationship between a man and nature as he comes across the gruesome sight of a pregnant deer that has been hit on the road. “Woodchuck,” on the other hand, introduces the unpleasant reality of human egotism toward animals as the main character is seen slaughtering birds. Although “Traveling through the Dark” and “Woodchucks” both illustrate nature and the death of animals, a combination of tone, diction, and imagery stresses a barrier amidst them, revealing the dissimilar mentalities of both speakers in handling situations expressively.
