The hunter stalks his prey with the determination of the quietly desperate. It has been three weeks and this could be his last chance. Everywhere he looks it is the same story - his prey used to be there, but no longer. Is it extinct?
Finally, success! The prey is found, the hunter pounces. Only to stop at the last moment. This one is too well protected. The hunter can not afford to take it on. The search must continue.
A weaker specimen is cornered in another, smaller store. It will do.
Satisfied with his purchase, the hunter steps out of the store, then falls to his knees in anguish. He forgot to take advantage of the free gift-wrapping.
