[Charlie, after having caused some havoc on the logger's river drive earlier, is shown being chained to Jess Bradley's truck]
Narrator: The long chain of circumstances that started on the river drive finally ended up back at the mill - with Charlie on the short end. You see, when the Big Boss started adding lost man hours to mangled groceries to busted-up Wanigans, he decided to subtract one cougar. And he ordered Jess to keep a curb on that cat. Charlie didn't like the new setup at all. He had the growing feeling that he was getting' left out, put upon, and neglected. What's more, he was just plain bored.
