A maimed cougar is killing people. When the tracker decides to quit, Steve volunteers to continue the hunt alone.

While there he learns the cougar was maimed by Mr. Mayhew and killed their son and Mr. Mayhew blames himself for panicking during its attack. Steve and Mr Mayhew hunt the cougar together but the cougar maims Steve's leg when Mr. Mayhew panics again. Mrs. Mayhew nurses him back to health and asks Steve to take her away as she is tired of being alone and blames her husband for not protecting their son.
