How could you do such a thing

However because of the amount of hunting he has done he no longer finds any of the animals meant for hunting fun to hunt anymore ,so he wanted to find his own animal that was perfect.
The General explains how he has the biggest game on his island ,and how this animals has supplied him with the best hunting and all the hunting he will ever need. General Zaroff then describes the animal and how it is cunning, courageous ,and it can reason.
General Zaroff states that the animal he finds best to hunt is humans. The General then back up his reasoning for this and says that it is not murder but instead just hunting. However Rainsford thinks other wise so the general offers him a proposal. Rainsford accepts this proposal and they proceed in a hunt.
