He didn’t know how to speak or understand language and he had to get used to the feel of his own body and to figure out basic concepts like light and dark, heat and cold, and hunger and thirst. He wandered out into the forest where he could hide and look for berries and nuts. The first human he sees is an old man in a hut who runs away in terror because the monster is so hideous. He’s fascinated by the first village he walks into, but the residents are terrified and they drive him off by throwing things at him. He finally found shelter in this little shed built up against the side of a cottage.
He encountered many confrontations and adventures in the wild, but Buck still remains the leader due to his strength. He has gone through many situations, lost his team, and his recent master.

Once the ship was unusable, the men salvaged what they could use off of the ship and moved to a stable area near the ship. Every thing they could grab from the ship was used in some way. The dogs they had brought were used for hunting and also for eating, in some cases. Lifeboats were created from the scavenged wood planks of the ship and tents were made from canvas that was in the vessel, even if there wasn’t anything to place them on except the ice which would soak the cloth and create cold conditions. All the men keep trying to make life sustainable for themselves and to be able to survive whilst being in the middle of nowhere.
The men mistreat the animals for way too long, and to the animals being unfed was the last straw in their miserable lives. Even while only eating the bare nutrients in order to survive, the men still expect the animals to perform their jobs to their full potential. Consequently, the animals then break into the storage shed that contains food and help themselves to food. The men then enter the shed with whips to punish the animals, and “this was one more than the hungry animals could bear..they flung themselves upon their tormentors” (38). After being abused and mistreated the animals could no longer tolerate their poor living conditions, so they carry out the rebellion by kicking man off Manor farm.
At the same time that this was going on, Simon, a gentle, kind boy, had been rushing back to camp, to tell the rest of the boys of his revelation, that the “beast” that they had been scared of, was really inside of them. However, covered in the blood, sweat, and the darkness of the night, when Simon entered the camp, the boys had began to see Simon not as himself, but as the monster. Consequently, they killed him with their bare hands and teeth, as if they were predators ripping into prey. The text states, “The beast struggled forward….at once the crowd surged after it… leapt onto the beast, screamed, struct, bit, tore. There were no words, and no movements but the tearing of teeth and claws,” (Golding 153).
With the hatchet, he had to struggle hard to get food and at the same time protect himself from the wild animals in the wilderness (Erickson 213). Additionally, he had to battle for survival in the cold environment with hopes that one day he will be saved. After a long struggle in the wilderness, he managed to get out of the forest victories and more energized due to the hardship he went through while in the
His story “A Piece of Steak” is a reference to the crushing poverty that people faced in London. The protagonist Tom King, a heavyweight boxer, is past his prime. Now broke, he does not fight for glory but fights for money to pay for food for his family and rent for his apartment. He is described as animalistic; so worn down that he is almost not human, whereas his foreign challenger, Sandel, is described as god like with terms such as: heavy-thewed, deep chested, and youth incarnate. Tom holds his place for six rounds, but does not have the endurance like the young buck, Sandel.
Society was cruel through their lifestyles. Different people at these time were treated badly because of their age, race and gender.

Killer whales have no choice but to perform all day. “In his first home, Sealand in British Columbia, he was trained with other whales using punishment: if he mess up a trick, they’d all have their food withheld” (Lewis Helen). Other killer whales began a strong dislike at this and would scratch them with their teeth so hard he would bleed. They are forced to do tricks for people and they get frustrated because there enclosures are nothing compared to the wild.
Last week Terrence Cody, a former NFL player, was condemned to nine months in jail by a Baltimore County judge for cruelly starving his dog to death. The photos of Taz, the dog is tragic!
