The elephant and Bug-getter
The first 200 words of this essay...
Laurie Chan-March 2009
When things are not thought thoroughly, situations can get more complicated than it needs to be. These personal intensions are not always intended. But even today, strong feelings and personal bias influence can cause a little mistake and lead to a larger problem. Slawomir Mrozek's The Elephant clearly shows the director's selfishness in his decisions and in return, he has crushed the lives of a pack of schoolchildren. Same thing goes for Reginald C. Bretnor's Bug-getter. It demonstrated how one word can lead to a huge misunderstanding taken many lives. Both stories had the idea of a protagonist making/helping the world become a better place in their own ways and their actions or so they think.
In Slawomir Mrozek's The Elephant, the director of the Zoological Gardens sees the animals of his zoo as "stepping stones on the road of his own career." He is careless about the educational value of his own zoo. Since the Zoo was in a provincial town, the zoo wasn't funded and therefore was lacking "some of the most important animals", basically with what animals they had were all a surplus. "Three thousand rabbits"
