Murder for base Motives

It happened in one of the harshest winters sometime in the 19th century. in Austria. One family suffered from cold and hunger. The summer harvest was meager and so the hermit family, the parents and the six children sat around the table and knew neither in nor out. Father couldn’t hold it anymore. He got up from the table in silence, took his shotgun out of the cupboard, and went out to the house. Nobody said anything. Nobody tried to hold him back, even if everyone knew what he was up to. Poaching was a serious offense. And that’s what he would be guilty of. The wild animals that were there belonged to the owner of the forest, the Count, who was allowed to shoot as much as he wanted, just for fun and to drive away the boredom.
