Beasts of Burden
There are reports of a strange hippo-like creature that was roaming around in the sewers up until it was found and secured in an equally friendly environment. The big friendly aquatic giant was found by a group of students playing hooky after the strange events at lunch on Tuesday. No one is quite sure where the creature is now, but it’s an herbivore, so at least we know that we don’t have anything to worry about other than, if you should come across one, don’t let it roll over on you, or step on you.
Editors Note: As a notice to students. 1) Please stay on school property while school is in session except when allowed; such as during lunch for seniors. 2) Strange beasts should be reported to the SPD who have special task divisions for such things.
What happens when aliens have to fight other aliens? The answer is pretty obvious, a fight. In an abundant number of planets out there capable of sustaining some form of life, there are an almost limitless number of predators and prey. The reasons that conflict happen can be anything, but survival is often the most crucial component. When confronted with the end, what would you do if you were face to face with an enemy that you did not want to kill, but had to put down for your own safety? Personally, I would do everything in my power to use nonlethal force, but that is not the same for all.
