Nick contradicts being a selfish fox when he started to care for Judy because of how hard she had worked to solve this case. Nick selflessly took the time that Judy made him stay for and made the most of it by clearing his head of negativity and actually helping Judy with Information she needed. Nearing the end of the film Judy had said “It may have something to do with biology, meaning she had said because all the animals to go savage have been predators, the only animals that will go savage are all predators and that no prey could ever kill a fly. That made Nick very upset and made him lose respect for Judy. After Judy had found out that the “Night howler” was a flower and that it was making the animals go savage she found Nick as quick as possible to apologize for what she had said and to tell him that she had figures out why the animals were going savage.
It would break their hearts and lives. It would take away everything that they have left in this world.” Therefore, even though Ama is asking for a veiling of the truth, she does so out of respect for the elders and their beliefs. This respect runs deep enough that Ama is willing to accept her banishment rather than tear apart the world the elders have tried desperately to maintain. Within this story also rests ideas about the importance of tribal sovereignty. Ama is given a trial by the state since she has broken a written law, killing a panther.
The story is told from the omniscient first person point of view. The man has come across this snake while he is out on a walk through the desert. Both the man and the snake had no intentions of harming the other at first, “My first instinct was to let him go his way and I would go mine…”. Then the man puts into perspective that he needs to be the protector of the other people that live with him, “But I reflected that there were children, dogs, horses at the ranch, as well as men and women lightly shod; my duty, plainly, was to kill the snake”. The use of the first person point of view helps to portray the sadness and sorrow of the man, and overall to appeal to the pathos of the reader by going after their
When faced with a potentially dangerous animal, one must decide if they should attack the animal before it attacks them. In the short story “The Rattler”, a man is walking close to his ranch when he encounters a rattlesnake. He is faced with the decision of whether he should kill the snake to keep the people around the ranch safe or let it go, ultimately deciding to kill the snake. Through diction and tone, the author makes the reader feel as though the snake should have lived through sympathy for the snake. Throughout the story, the author uses strong word choice to indicate that the snake did nothing wrong.
Once again, Eurylochus displays a juxtaposition. He did not follow the others into Circe's home because he knew there was trouble and potentially death awaiting.

“The Rattler” portrays the narrator’s moral conflict between his sense of duty to other people and his respect for all life through diction and anthropomorphism. The narrator describes hunting as “the sport in taking life”, showing disdain for the past time by implying that those who hunt do not value the lives of animals, adding later that hunting “is a satisfaction I can’t feel.” His thoughts show that he values the lives of animals just as much as humans. Another example is that after initially choosing to leave the snake alone, he then “reflected that … my duty, plainly, was to kill the snake” in order to protect the “children, dogs, horses, at the ranch, as well as men and women lightly shod.” Calling the act of killing the snake “my
Jewett explained earlier in the text that Sylvia “would have liked him vastly better without his gun,” but while Sylvia sat in that tree her eyes and mouth became that same vessel. She could decide to climb down and tell the hunter where the bird and its mate nested, killing them, or she could keep their secret and allow the two creatures to live. If she told the hunter, she would have been just as bad, if not worse than him. The forest trusted her enough to bring her to the top of the tree, so could Sylvia hold as much power of the gun in her hands as the hunter could while killing the heron? This was where Sylvia made her final decision, and one that will change the course of her life and what she views as truly

Lennie’s pure strength and actions led his best friend George to kill him, so that he doesn’t get in any more trouble. George killing Lennie was a justified murder because Lennie was too dangerous, Lennie would have been killed anyways, and he only would slow George down and drag him into trouble. Lennie was way too dangerous to be kept alive, because he has no comprehension of his true strength. He was just too mentally challenged to even understand his sheer power. For example, Lennie explains to Curley’s Wife how he unintentionally killed the puppy, “I made it like I was gonna smack him… an I done it.
I do agree that George did the right thing shooting Linnie instead of Curley and the others shooting him for the pain instead of caring about Curley 's wife that just died.

Some people say George could 've saved Lennie .George could not save Lennie because Lennie would just make
