Zaroff has no respect for life and enjoys hunting for the kill.

Rainsford is an adventurous hunter, who basically hunts for the sport. Unlike Whitney, he believes that animals have no understanding of what is happening.

"Don't talk rot, Whitney," said Rainsford. "You're a big-game hunter, not a philosopher. Who cares how a jaguar feels?"

"Perhaps the jaguar does," observed Whitney.

"Bah! They've no understanding."

Whitney also sees hunting as a great sport.

"Great sport, hunting."

But he also feels for the animal......

"The best sport in the world," agreed Rainsford.

"For the hunter," amended Whitney. "Not for the jaguar."

"Don't talk rot, Whitney," said Rainsford. "You're a big-game hunter, not a philosopher. Who cares how a jaguar feels?"

"Perhaps the jaguar does," observed Whitney.

"Bah! They've no understanding."

"Even so, I rather think they understand one thing--fear. The fear of pain and the fear of death."
