This is a substantial revision of my story Tigers are Predators, Humans are Prey, which I wrote for my English 351 class last quarter. For our final portfolio, we were required to make a major revision to one of our stories, and I re-wrote "Tigers" completely from the Tiger's P.O.V. I think the story is definitely improved.

Ah well, it happens ;-)

Since then, several people have followed up to his plot direction, but not mine, so I may want to re-work that video to follow the new plotline. But in the meantime, still wanting to contribute (and get some experience playing with iMovie's capabilities!), I've added a new segment to that plotline. Here it is:
