Thanks to the Vegetarian Pact, all animals live together in "peace and harmony". All but one: stinky hyena Crevel, who is sick of his crappy-daily-fruit-and-vegetable ration and is desperate to sink his teeth into some tender co-inhabitant of the world. Determined to get his fill and to wreak havoc in the prevailing "good karma" atmosphere, one night Crevel goes to the cemetery planning to stuff himself with stiffs, but he can't do it: someone has beat him to it! Pérsicus, the president lion, and his consigliere, tiger Altaicus, have set up a perverse food smuggling network with the bodies in order to secretly fulfil their hunger for meat. When they are discovered, they blame Crevel of the brutal profanation, forcing him to escape from the herbivores' fury.
