Storyboard Text

  • I married early, and was happy to find in my wife a disposition not uncongenial with my own. Observing my partiality for domestic pets, she lost no opportunity of procuring those of the most agreeable kind. We had birds, gold-fish, a fine dog, rabbits, a small monkey, and a cat.
  • I suffered myself to use intemperate language to my wife. At length, I even offered her personal violence. I not only neglected, but ill-used them. For Pluto, however, I still retained sufficient regard to restrain me from maltreating him
  • I took from my waistcoat-pocket a pen-knife, opened it, grasped the poor beast by the throat, and deliberately cut one of its eyes from the socket !
  • One morning, in cool blood, I slipped a noose about its neck and hung it to the limb of a tree
  • I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain. She fell dead upon the spot, without a groan.
  • The corpse, already greatly decayed and clotted with gore, stood erect before the eyes of the spectators.
