Mrs. Packletide's Tiger

$\;$
It was Mrs. Packletide's pleasure and intention that she should shoot a tiger. The compelling motive was the fact that Loona Bimberton had recently been carried eleven miles in an aeroplane by an Algerian aviator, and talked to nothing else; only a personally procured tiger-skin and a heavy harvestof Press photographs could suc-
5
cessfully counter that sort of thing. Mrs. Packletide had already arranged in her mind the lunch she would give at her house in Curzon Street, ostensibly in Loona Bimberton's honour, with a tiger-skin rug occupying most of the foreground and all of the conversation. In a world that is supposed to be chiefly swayed by hunger and by love Mrs. Packletide was an exception: her movements and motives were largely gov-
10
erned by dislike of Loona Bimberton.
Circumstances proved propitious. Mrs. packletide had offered a thousand rupees for the opportunity of shooting a tiger without over-much risk or exertion, and it happened that a neighbouring village could boast of being the favoured rendezvous of an animal of respectable antecedents. The prospect of earning the thousand rupees
15
had stimulated the sporting and commercial instinct of the villagers; children were posted night and day on the outskirts of the local jungle to head the tiger back in the unlikely event of his attempting to roam away to fresh hunting-grounds, and the cheaper kinds of goats were left about with elaborate carelessness to keep him satisfied with his present quarters. The one grat anxiety was lest he should die of old
20
age before the date appointed for the memsahib's shoot.
The great night duly arrived, moonlit and cloudless. A platform had been constructed in a comfortable and conveniently placed tree, and thereon crouched Mrs. Packletide and her paid companion, Miss Mebbin. A goat gifted with a particularly persistent bleat, such as even a partially deaf tiger might be reasonably expected
25
to hear on a still night, was tethered at the correct distance. With an accurately sighted grifle and a thumb-nail pack of patience cards the sportswoman awaited the coming of the quarry.
"I suppose we are in some danger?" said Miss Mebbin
"Nonsense." said Mrs. packletide; "it's a very old tiger. It couldn't spring up here
30
even if it wanted to."
"If it's an old tiger. I think you oght to get it cheaper. A thousand rupees is a lot of money."
Louisa Mebbin adopted a protective elder-sister attitude towards money in general, irrespective of nationality or denomination. Her speculations as to the market do
35
preciation of tiger remnants were cut short by the appearance on the scene of the animal itself. As soon as it caught sight of the tethered goat it lay flat on the earth, seemingly less from a desire to take advantage of all available cover than for the purpose of snatching a short rest before commencing the grand attack.
"I believe it's ill," said Louisa Mebbin, loudly in Hindustani, for the benefit of the
40
village headman, who was in ambush in a neighbouring tree.
"Hush!" said Mrs. Packletide, and at that moment the tiger commenced ambling towards his victim.
"Now, now!" urged Miss Mebbin with some excitement; "if he doesn't touch the goat we needn't pay for it."
45
The rifle flashed out with a loud report, and the great tawny beast sprang to one side and then rolled over in the stillness of death, In a moment a crowd of excited natives had swarmed on to the scene, and their shouting speedily caarried the glad news to the village. And their triumph and rejoicing found a ready echo in the heart of Mrs. Packletide; already that luncheon-party in Curzon Street seemed immeasurabely near-
50
er.
It was Louisa Mebbin who drew attention to the fact that the goat was in death-throes from a mortal bullet-wound, while no trace of the rifle's deadly work could be found on the tiger. Evidently the wrong animal had been hit, and the beast of prey had succumbed to heart-failure, caused by the sudden report of the rifle, accelerated
55
by senile decay. Mrs. Packletide was pardonably annoyed at the discovery;; but, at any rate, she was the possessor of a dead tiger, and th villagers, anxious for their thousand rupees, gladly connived at the fiction that she had shot the beast. And Miss Mebbin was a paid companion. Therefore did Mrs. Packletide face the cameras with a light heart. As for Loona Bimberton, she refused to loot at an illustrated paper for
60
weeks. The luncheon-party she declined; there are limits beyond which repressed emotions become dangerous.
From Curzon Street the tiger-skin rug travelled down to the Manor House and it seemed a fitting and appropriate thing when Mrs. Packletide went to the County Costume Ball in the character of Diana.
65
"How amused everyone would be if they knew what really happened," said Louisa Mebbin a few days after the ball.
"What do you mean?" asked Mrs. Packletide quickly.
"How you shot the goat and frightened the tiger to death," said Miss Mebbin, with her disagreeably pleasant laugh.
70
"No one would believe it." said Mrs. Packletide.
"Loona Bimberton would," said Miss Mebbin. Mrs. Packletide's settled on an unbecoming shade of greenish wite.
"You surely wouldn't give me away?" she asked.
"I've seen a weekênd-cottage near Darking that I should rather like to buy," said
75
Miss Mebbin with seeming irrelevance. "Six hundred and eighty, freehold. Quite a bargain, only I don't happen to have the money."
Louisa Mebbin's pretty weekend-cottage, gay in summer-time with its garden borders of tiger-lilies, is the wonder and admiration of her friends.
"It is marvel how Louisa manages to do it," is the general verdict.
80
Mrs. Packletide indulges in no more big-game shooting.
"The incidental expenses are so heavy," she confides to inquiring friends.

In his text “Mrs. Packletide’s Tiger“ H. H. Munro deals with the fact that Mrs. Packletide decides to kill a tiger and how she manages to arrange this kind of action.
The lady offers the amount of one thousand rupees in order to have the chance to kill a tiger without putting herself in great danger (Text, line 11). The “neighbouring village” (Text, line 13) manages to find a tiger that lives among the woods with “respectable antecedents” Text, line 14) for Mrs. Packletide. The money is responsible for the village being very concerned about the tiger until the event would have happened. So the only fear of all the people is that the tiger would not live until Mrs Packletide would have had the chance to shoot it. (Text, line 19-20) This is why the people make sure that the tiger stays near the village which they can assure throughout offering him food in form of their least valuable goats. (Text, line 15-19)
Einleitung
  • actual course of events
When the fateful night arrives, the setting is simply perfect. Mrs. Packletide arrives with her rifle and her paid companion, Miss Mebbin. They both step up on a platform previously erected in a tree by the villagers. A constantly bleeding goat is tethered within shooting range and the village chief hides in another tree to support the women when it would become necessary and dangerous. (Text, line 21-27) When the tiger finally arrives he moves very slowly towards the goat because of his age. Before he is even able to reach his victim Packletide pulls the trigger. In fact she is only able to shoot the goat, but the tiger dies immediately because of an heart attack, which then makes it look like as if he would have been shot. (Text, line 35-55)
Hauptteil
  • course of the night
In the end the death of the tiger is celebrated by Mrs. Packletide and the villagers, even though Miss Mebbin points out towards her companion that the tiger did not die because of the bullet. This is why she receives money in order to stay quiet about this matter and Mrs. Packletide manages to outshine her rival Mrs Bimber. (Text, line 56-58)

Loona Bimberton and Louisa Mebbin have a great influence on the life of Mrs. Packletide. The first one is more an enemy and the second one seems to be a friend at first sight, but also more seen as an enemy to Packletide.
Einleitung
On the one hand there is Loona Bimberton who has taken a trip on a plane, which makes her for now the topic that everyone is talking about. (Text, line 2-3-) This makes Mrs. Packletide startle since she sees Bimberton as her worst enemy and tries to come up with a plan to outshine her. (Text, line 9-10) To accomplish this he comes up with the idea of shooting a tiger. Her intention is to arrange a party allegedly to honour Mrs Bimberton’s achievement. On this occasion, she wants to exhibit the tigerskin to draw people’s attention to her own adventure and to become the talk of the town. (Text, line 5-8) Mrs. Packletide’s plan to make Loona Bimberton jealous succeeds. Her opponent cannot bear to read about the tiger-hunt in the papers and also turns down the invitation to lunch as she doubts she will be capable of hiding her feelings. (Text, line 59-61)
Hauptteil
  • Loona Bimberton
  • worst enemy
  • tiger-hunt

Louisa Mebbin on the other hand, is Mrs. Packletide’s so called “paid companion” (Text, line 58), a penny-pinching women who concerns herself with her employer’s financial affairs and who apparently wants to protect her from unnecessarily spending her money (Text, line 31-34). After the tiger-hunt their relationship changes because Mebbin points out towards Packletide that the tiger did not die because of a bullet, but rather because he was suffering a heart attack. She says that she would keep this secret if Packletide would pay her money. (Text, line 65-79) and this is why she gets paid for another time.
  • Louisa Mebbin
  • paid companion
So what one might draw from that now is that even though Packletide manages to triumph over her worst enemy Bimberton, she makes herself a new enemy by involving Mebbin into the matter of affairs.

This short story seems to be very ironic because of the fact that the author uses irony in order to show different aspects of human nature. As an unpleasant character trait he focuses on greed in different forms. Greed appears in first position when Mrs. Packletide wants to end the public attention that Loona Bimberton is gaining from the people. Instead of getting over this childish behaviour, Packletide makes a plan in order to outshine her enemy by shooting a tiger and giving a party in order to change the things, announce her deed and show the tigerskin as a proof. (Text, line 1-8) Miss Mebbin’s and the villagers’ greed focuses on money, a fact which the author describes very pointedly. The choice of words is highly sarcastic when he describes Miss Mebin’s intentions as “a protective elder-sister attitude towards money […], irrespective of nationality or denomination” (Text, line 33-34) The same greed for money applies to the villagers that offer the tiger the least cheap of their goats in order to make sure that he stays next to the village. (Text, line 17-18) They want to spend as little money as possible in order to immensely benefit from the deal with Mrs. Packletide that will give them one thousand rupees.
  • greed in different forms
  • Mrs. Packletide
  • Miss Mebbin
  • the villagers
Furthermore, the author describes jealousy. In Mrs. Packletide’s case, he uses an alliteration and a metaphor when he writes about “a heavy harvest of Press photographs” (Text, line 4) to show how she plans to surpass her rival’s achievement. Her harvest, which is normally something essential and life-giving, consists of outward signs that she is more popular than her enemy. Most of the actions of Mrs. Packletide are driven by the “dislike of Loona Bimberton” (Text, line 8-10), which is very sarcastic when we think of the fact that what we do is who we are. So everything Mrs. Packletide is made of are the actions driven by her enemy.

When there is a sunny day without any clouds parents often go somewhere outside with their children. They can eat ice scream, go for a walk, play outside or they do it all at once, at the zoo. These places are the home of many different species and the animals get fed, do not have anything to do and are there in order to please the kids and their parents. Sounds fun? Actually it is no fun at all. The circumstances in which the animals have to live are a disaster. Children knocking on the windows, children crying out loud, children petting the animals – this is what life as a zoo animal is like. On top of that most of them are not able to live a life according to their natural surroundings. Polar bears, penguins or zebras do not appear to live in our environment, in this climate zone. So why should we punish these creatures and put them in a cage, a terrarium or a compound which is not even near to be big enough? There is no meaning in doing so, this is why I am of the opinion that zoos should be abolished.

Mahatma Gandhi was a very wise and considered man. There are many words and saying that can be traced back to his opinion and one of them is this statement. First of all every single human being on earth should object to violence since there is always another way of reaction. Secondly Gandhi could refer to a situation where one might be mad at another person and reacts in a harsh or violent way because of his negative feelings. The problem with these feeling is, according to Gandhi, that they are only temporary. If you might feel mad at someone in one second, you will most likely not have the feeling towards this person forever. The core of this saying would then be that your temporary feelings lead you to an action whose followings will be permanent, such as hurt or pain. To wrapped Mahatma Gandhi’s statement up it would be fair enough to say that we should avoid making actions out of temporary strong feelings, we should rather think before speaking, answering or acting to make sure that no one, neither us nor the people around, will be hurt.

Dear friends,

I achieved your mail a few days ago. I am sorry that I am responding so late to you, but I had to make up my mind about what I am going to write to you.
I have not been quite sure what to make out of your words, what to make out of your plans. You should know by now that I am a great fan of gap years and that I support your decision in taking one, so please keep that in mind when I am now going to talk about a more serious issue.
Einleitung

  • leading to subject
I know Mount Everest and I know the tours that you can take to the base camp on this mountain. This is why I am very surprised to hear of you that these are your plans for your gap year. It is dangerous outside. And we are not talking about the way of being dangerous as everyone else would it consider to be, but real danger. What made you decide to do this trip? I have been wondering for the last couple of days and nothing, really nothing made sense or came to my mind as a respectable answer. So please let me know why you would risk your lives in such a stupid way. Adrenaline? A movie? Or just the fun? I do not really know, but I will wait for your answer and hopefully you can brighten it up.

I am thinking of you, guys.
Love, Anne

In the picture we can see a tiger sitting in an armchair with his feet up, reading the newspaper smoking a cigar and drinking wine. He is sitting in the living room. In the right corner of the picture there is a fire in a chimney. In front of the chimney there lies a dead human being that is dressed like a hunter. Above the chimney there are photos showing other animals and on the wall there are six heads of hunters and a broken weapon.
Einleitung
  • description of the cartoon
The cartoonist mocks the fact that humans hunt for the thrill and entertainment than rather for a reason. He does this by replacing hunter and huntee, by mixing the roles in this cruel game. So what we see in the picture is a tiger instead of a hunter and the trophies are all from humans instead of animals. By mixing up the roles he emphasizes the nonsense in hunting and the reaction of the viewers should wake us up and maybe also change our minds towards this activity.
Hauptteil
  • analysis of the cartoon
  • interpretation
I agree with the opinion of the cartoonist. Killing animals and showing their dead bodies as trophies in living rooms to other people is very cruel. If we also take into account the fact that it is only because of mere fun than rather for a reason, this behaviour gets even more cruel.
Schluss
  • own opinion
  • agree or disagree with the cartoonist
