He is sure the dog's owner is abusing him. Marty feels protective of the dog, and names him Shiloh. Marty's father thinks the dog belongs to Judd Travers, who recently got another hunting dog. Marty doesn't like Judd or trust him. Marty knows that Judd kills deer out of season, and he hates that Judd chews tobacco and tries to spit it close to people he doesn't like.
Starting as a figment of the boys imagination and fear of the dark, the beast drew each boy to care about their own survival rather than the state of the society . Being Ralph’s rival as leader, Jack, says the beast is not real and brings a group to hunt it(Golding 75). On their mission, they discover the deceased pilot from the plane hanging from a tree but mistakenly believe it is the beast, thus greatening the boys fear. The more fearful they are, the more savage and the more primitive they become. As the conches color fades, so does everyone's humanity(Golding 78).
Candy’s dog is more of a warning to everyone rather than just Lennie.

Before chapter 2, Jack was afraid to kill the pig. But, after the littleluns said that there was a beastie, he initiated the plan to hunt and kill the beast. This quote portrays how the beastie somehow started the savage instinct in Jack because even though he knows that the beast does not exist, he is still determined to kill it. Additionally, they went more wild when some boys have claimed they saw the beast. “This head is for the beast.
“The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell is a story about a man, Sanger Rainsford, whose ideals and overall character change throughout the story, specifically about hunting, due to his encounter with General Zaroff. At the beginning of the story Rainsford is a stuck up man. He could not care less about any other living things other than humans. He believes all living wildlife are expendable and only there for his pleasure of hunting. During the story Rainsford has to make many quick and overall difficult decisions during his encounters with the ocean, General Zaroff, and the island wilderness to survive, that change how he thinks about animals.
Who will join my tribe?” This shows that Jack is manipulating the boys by not giving them an option. He is almost telling them that if you don’t go with me, my hunters won't protect you or get you food. This is one of Jack strategies to build up his group. He doesn’t care about the well-being of the boys though he main focus is just being in charge. When Ralph was in charge of the group Jack was very upset and mad.
“The beast is the hunter.” (126) Jack said this when they were wondering what the beast was. In reality, the hunter was the beast. The hunters, aka the boys, were taking off their masks when they hunted, thus releasing their inner beast. Jack knew this, but he didn’t want the others to realize it either. When Simon was dehydrated and walking through the island after the pig hunt, he saw and heard the Lord of the Flies in the sow’s head.
This is how he stepped on the butterfly and doomed the present life. Because Eckels changed history by being scared, did not take responsibility for his actions, and disobeyed orders, he was killed by Travis. If he hadn't been scared, he would not have stepped of the path. If he had taken responsibility, Travis might have not murdered him. If he had obeyed instructions, he would not have changed history.
At another instance, Ralph, who never believed in hunting shows inhumanity. In chapter 7, Jack, Ralph and all other hunters went to the forest to hunt a pig and when they did not get a pig, they try to torture Robert. They pushed him in the circle and started a tribal dance around him. This situation is beautifully described by Golding, who said that,“The desire to squeeze and hurt was over-mastering” (Golding 115). The boys don’t only want to harm or kill animals, but also other humans.
Due to his touch being so heavy, he often kills the animals on accident. When in the ranch he even killed the puppy he had that Slim gave to him on accident. In order to save Lennie from harsh consequences, George would always help Lennie by attempting to make him aware that his actions cause damage. Lennie’s killing of small animals foreshadows the incident that occurs in the ranch as the power of his strength is shown.
