the cages the Rooster understood that they were in the clutches of a
fowler. The fact that he himself was not in any cage and was free to

the idea of dog fights. He was under the false impression that Otis was
actually afraid of roosters and he had no reason to think otherwise. But
there was one thing that altered his idea of Otis.
