The girls are all giggling, then one girl suddenly remembersthe wild goat. Up there, on the hilltop, in the woodsand rocky ravines, the peasants saw him butting his headagainst the trees, looking for the nannies. He’s gone wild,and the reason why is this: if you don’t make an animal work,if you keep him only for stud, he likes to hurt, he kills.
