The leopard cub is very playful, and proves to be a handful for Terk and Tantor, who lose sight of it and the cub causes trouble with the baboons.

But when Staquait comes for the deserters (who are "criminals"), Jane turns them in only to realize that their crime was refusal to burn a village full of men, women and children down.
