Sire, I have consulted my library and in the bestiary they make mention of a similar creature. In Latin it is called "barrus". I know not its name in English. We will call it "Barry"! Barry is a ver nice name Your Majesty.

We must find it food before all of my roses are gone. Perhaps we can put it in with the horses and feed it grain and hay?

It is taught that Hannibal crossed the Alps and attacked the Romans on such beasts defeating them soundly a number of times. He likes alfalfa the best.

That was the conclusion to “The Hunt!” I hope you enjoyed it. I wrote it several years ago compared with the current “Wheel Tales of Willow City” and “Space Trek” stories and “Vlad” from this series.

I ended up breaking “The Hunt!” up only into 6 parts. I made some a bit longer to fit the story-line. I predicted 7 based on the length and doing 5 panels at a time with 35 panels. However the story didn’t feel right just broken up by the numbers.

I hope you enjoy it and will share it with your friends, relatives, and colleagues. You needn’t do any ear lending if you don’t want to.

See Brother Jacque, that boy is bringing in the giant moose I was telling you about! Sire, I do not believe that to be a moose. I shall have to check the beastiary in my cloister. I like it!

Your moose ate our farm's taxes. I'm afraid that everyone must pay their taxes. But considering that it is our pet, your taxes are paid in full.

“The Hunt!” is to be continued! Watch for it!

I am breaking up The Hunt! into 7 manageable parts. I hope you enjoy it and will share it with your friends, relatives, and colleagues. You needn’t do any ear lending if you don’t want to.

Addendum… it might only be 6 parts. I made some a bit longer to fit the story-line.
