Tunnel mouths pocked the edges leading to what had to be a vast network of burrows. The Pure Ones—that loathsome lot was here, near his home, AGAIN! Cletus tried to calm his brother down. He practically had to wrestle Tavis away from the burrow. He was just as furious as his brother, but he knew that rage would do them no good now. The brothers flew toward their burrow. Something had to be done. “Think, Tavis, think! We can‟t just go attacking without a plan,” he said. “We have more than ourselves to think about.
He bellowed. The owls in the burrow hooted eagerly. Outside, Tavis and Cletus felt a hollow pull in their gizzards.

It was an appalling sight. The bundle of prey was far larger than the owl. And he looked to be using all his strength to move the bundle. “Well, that‟s just plain wrong,” Cletus said. “Disgusting,” Tavis agreed. It‟s an unwritten rule among owls that you never kill more than you can eat. Doing so was not only wasteful, but more important, it was disrespectful to the creature that gave its life.
