Wolf sees rabbit. Wolf wants to chase rabbit. Wolf wants to catch rabbit. Wolf wants to devour rabbit.
Wolf has to work very, very hard to not act on that impulse, even when wolf knows it is neither the time nor the place to be seen to be attacking cute lil’ bunnies.
Wolf may succeed for a little while, but sooner or later the rabbit will be caught. And the more the rabbit shakes its cottontail in the wolf’s face, the sooner that day will come.
