This story starts out with a very excited boy as he discovered and captured a very large and active grasshopper that was playing in the backyard. For a little over an hour, this boy took great delight in playing catch and release with his jumping friend. But this all ended in tragedy, when his new friend was spotted by a black bird. As the little boy was chasing after his friend to catch him again, the black bird swooped down and stole his little grasshopper. The black bird then perched himself on the fence in front of the little boy and maliciously crunched down his little friend. In turn the boy was screaming at the black bird with tears running down his face, and shouting, "Bad bird, bad bird!!!"
