peter and the wolf
Made changes to the farm shot, based on suggestions, any better?
I seem to be on a snow thing right now. Just watched peter and the wolf again (and a trailer for a stop motion version, which influenced this peter somewhat). Of course today I think our sympathy would be with the wolf. Not that the original stories all the inhumane actually: Peter simply ties the wolf to a tree and stops the hunters from shooting it: the wolf is simply taken to a zoo. If it were made today, they'd probably take the wolf and relocate it up in the mountains far from the farms and livestock it was growing too accustomed to. The danger of wolves has certanly been exagerated, but it's quite plausable for one to be a threat to farm pets and a small boy.
