SCHLOCK: Uh-oh. She's not here.
HANDLER: Somebody stole Betsumei?
SCHLOCK: No, she stole herself. She's an ellie, a sophont. An ordinary animal pen won't hold her.
SCHLOCK: She knows we're on to her, that she killed Zysk.
HANDLER: That's crazy.
HANDLER: Jum-jum killed Zysk, and it was an accident.
SCHLOCK: A nice theory. But what if Betsumei infected Jum-jum with musth, and then threw Zysk into Jum-jum's pen?
HANDLER: A nice theory, but musth isn't an infection. It's hormonal, and modern nanotics have it under control.
CHISULO: So there's no way that the musth symptoms among the rest of these bulls could possibly be actual musth, then?
HANDLER: What symptoms?
CHISULO: The usual: stinky urine, weeping temporal glands, naked aggression at our noisy intrusion...
HANDLER: Umm... who let them out of their pens?
