It’s the evening. The last glow of sunlight is on the horizon, but the stars are already out. In a field barren but for a bit of scrub brush, a large wolf trots past a lone deer. The deer is startled and alarmed because the wolf is a killer. For the wolf though, the deer is ‘his for the taking’, and therefore no haste is needed. In nature, sometimes predators enjoy ‘playing with their food’.
