Something seemed oddly deliberate about the cave entrance and so he decided to abandon his hunt to investigate further. He soon discovered what appeared to be ornate carvings in the rock. Little did he know that was just the beginning.

you find nothing inside! even if any however, it is of no use to mankind right!

That’s a truly amazing find. All you people making a big deal about him hunting a tiger, it was a different era and different mentality than your self agrandized sence of morality. Most brits of the Empire, especially officers in the military thought it was sporting but frown upon such things now so stop riding your high horses and notice the amazing discovery presented here.

Again killing is strictly prohibited especially from alien Buddhism
