The animals died because Lennie was petting them too harshly because he isn’t aware of his own strength. When Lennie is inside the barn he realizes the puppy died, he blames the puppy for not being strong enough instead of blaming himself for not having control over his strenght. “And Lennie said softly to the puppy, ‘Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice. I didn’t bounce you hard.’ He bent the pup’s head up and looked in its face, and he said to it, ‘Now maybe George ain’t gonna let me tend no rabbits, if he fin’s out you got killed.’ He scooped a little hollow and laid the puppy in it and covered it over with hay, out of sight; but he continued to stare at the mound he had made.
This shows that they fought constantly and made the two scared that their parents would only get more mad. They felt they would only hurt more people by saying they were married. Act 2 scene 2 line 70 “If they see you they’ll murder you”. This shows that they were so scared that they fought so much so they kept it a secret so the other would not be killed. This shows they unleashed their demise because their parents inspired this fear.
For example in Chapter 5, when Lennie is in the barn, getting all flustered and frustrated because he had just killed the pup on accident because he was play fighting with him, Curley’s Wife came in, and started bothering him. On page 90, Curley's wife said “ When I do my hair sometimes, I jus’ set an’ stroke it ‘cause its so soft.” To show this she did it, she ran her fingers over the top of her head. “Some people have coarse hair.” She said this, not knowing that Lennie likes to pet soft things. Then she had let him touch her hair, causing him to grab on and him basically killing her. My feelings about her throughout the book did not change, I didn’t like her at all from the beginning.
The Big Bad Wolf repeatedly tried to get in contact with each pig, so he could eat them. Each pig earlier built a house a house either out of hay, twig or bricks and in frustration, the wolf attempted to blow each house down. He blew two out of three houses down but could not eat the pigs before they ran to the next house. The last house, made out of brick, tired the Big Bad Wolf out until he could not huff or puff anymore, he was so tired that he gave up on eating the pigs but was very stubborn in the process. In result, you have learned that the famous Big Bad Wolf has always been bad.
He was then tricked by ivy when she “proceeding” to fall into the hole but she quickly moved out of the way for him to fall instead and died. The third and last reason why Noah had played such a role that had madness is when he had skinned the animals. The animal should be killed by one of the elders but he would skinned them for fun and leaves them out on the in obvious places such as outside the school and on corn field.

The boys had seen the creature hanging the pigs on the
22). Since Lennie is mentally challenged and can’t think fast enough, he relies on George to tell him what to do. Curley had turned on Lennie by punching him; and protect himself, Lennie had grabbed Curley’s hand and crushed with his own hand. Lennie felt bad for what he did so George
George had to decide whether or not he would kill Lennie mercifully, or let the rest of the worker's murder him. I believe George should have killed Lennie because he has hurt people, can’t control himself, and would have probably ended up in a horrible mental institution anyway. Despite Lennie’s seemingly innocent nature, he hurts many people and animals throughout the story. He would pet mice and break their tiny bodies. He had a puppy and killed it for trying to bite him.
Others say that Lennie is useless at his job and should stay with George at all times. Lennie likes to make trouble without even knowing what he is doing. When Curly punched Lennie in the face, Lennie did not want to fight back, but, then
