    Why did Mr. Cantor put a wolf and a deer in a room together? It seems to me that he was hoping to film a slaughter--why?

    Its one thing for a kill to happen in the wild, but I find it rather cruel and pointless to put preditor and prey in a room where the prey has no fair chance of escape.

    Really really moronic.....

  2. I think Mircea was fully aware that a well-fed wolf (on its own in a rom with a deer) is not going to touch it.

    Still, perhaps he was expecting a response such as 'anonymous'?
