Well, you can take this any where you want to take it, but I do know that there are some lessons to be learnt here. As far as I can remember, people who raise fowls, always have a pan of corn and other kind of feed, for their fowls, and they feed them several times of the day just like how they feed their family. Since they are expecting the fowls to lay eggs, for them to sell and also eat. Then there are times when they put the fowls to set on the eggs, to hatch more chickens, but however much you may feed a fowl, he or she will still be scratching in the garden, to find some roach or worms, to be murdereed as a delicacy. Normaly when you tell some one to stop doing something, which is the shi, and if the person continue to do it, it becomes annoying, and that is when something is throw just to scare them away, although the intention of the fowl, was to kill another creature like himself.
As for the lions, they are not vegetarians, they are fleshitarians, and their behavior in the forest has been always violent, for it is in their nature to kill whatevwer they choose to eat, from the various animals, to birds to human beings, that is just their nature and I do not expect them to change. If the loiness kills a deer for her dinner, the male lion will steal it away from her, and she will not be able to eat any of it, although she is the mother of his young children. The male lion will also kill other lions who are infants, if he is not the father of that group. If a tiger cat or a leopard have childern in the vicinity, they have to hide then away, or else they will also be killed by the male lion.
The wisefulness of our reasoning was based on prevention being better then cure, and that was why I made those quotations, and I must say that if the fowl had taken the many warnings of shi fowl, shi fowl, then she or he would not feel pam. As for the hunter, he was knowledgeable of the loins, and he was just giving a warning to those people, since prevention is much better, than to try to cure the matter later, when it is too late. The journey of life co0ntinues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
