Do Seek Their Meat from God
Transcript of Do Seek Their Meat from God
By Charles G.D. Roberts
Canadian poet and historian with an international reputation
best known for animal stories
was born in 1860 in Douglas, New Brunswick
"Do Seek Their Meat from God" was his first published animal story
Situation: Your friend is alone at a party while you go to the washroom. Your friend is approached by a drug dealer. You just happen to walk by them while your friend is about to give in. What would you do in this situation?
"Thank you for seeing me
I feel so less lonely
Thank you for getting me
I'm healed by your empathy"
"There were so many times, I thought I'd die not being truly known"
The boy is thankful that the settler didn't turn on him and came to save him. The settler empathized about his son being the one alone and scared and how he would feel if someone hurt him.
The boy was scared that he would never be heard or found and would be eaten by the panthers.
a panther symbolizes the antagonist in the story.
a settler symbolizes the protagonist.
This symbolizes "family", meaning that God teaches us to love one another. The boy's father left him alone. God guided the settler to this child so that he could be loved.
Meat symbolizes humans (in this case)
This relates to the title of the story "Do Seek Their Meat from God" because the panthers (the predator) are seeking food, which in this case, is human/ 7 year old boy (meat). Humans come from God, which links to the title "Do Seek Their MEAT FROM GOD".
Connection:Darwin Theory "Survival of the Fittest"
The ones who can fight survive and the weakest ones die off. In the story the main battle was between the panther and the settler. Both parents are trying to support their family but, only the strong will succeed.
The story starts off in a forest with two panthers
and their cubs, trying to find a food source. They
decide to go looking deep in the forest when they hear
the cries of a little boy. The panthers then pursue a
chase to get to the sounds, hoping that they can get
their next meal silently causing no harm to themselves.
Meanwhile, a settler hears cries on his way to his cabin.
As the cries became more loud and clear, the settler decides to find out what's wrong. The panthers, also hearing the sounds more clear and loud begin to race quicker and quicker toward the boys cry, until the boy is in sight. At that same moment the settler emerges from the forest and sees the panthers, then pulls out his rifle and kills them. In the end this caused a rippling effect, ultimately killing the panther's cubs.
rationally make decisions quickly.

SYDNEY GORDON &
Relates to Pop Culture
In the story the major decision was if the Settler should shoot the panthers or not.
Today the hard decision for us teens are the decisions that could have a huge affect on us and our lives.
Ex: going to parties and making the right decisions.
This story relates to
Pop Culture ...
became famous, he had that
about him. This past year he's made decisions that have affected him in a
way. We feel that this story shows readers the
consequences of making the
Name That Animal :)
This story also compares to the
with the theme "kill or be killed". The settler in the short story had to make a decision of killing the panthers or letting the little boy be killed. In the hunger games when Katniss and Peeta are the final two remaining, they had the decision of "kill or be killed" when they found out that there could only be one winner.
