Parker hates zoos. He’s on the hunt for something wild and dangerous…and he just might find it.

Parker                My whole life I’ve wanted to touch a lion. The fur is warm and the mane                                feels just like you think it does. You can feel the blood                                                           leaving, the heat leaving the body and you’ve accomplished something that                             nobody can ever take back. A lion.

                        Skinned him and took his head. No good if you don’t have proof.


                         Charlie. (beat) That’s his fucking name.

                          Fucking lion is named “Charlie”.
