Four-Eyes's mother wants a buffalo slaughtered for the feast, and is willing to pay for it. However, the villagers know that the Communist Party would disapprove of wasting a working beast, so they push the buffalo off a cliff and claim it accidentally fell. The narrator describes the painful wailing the animal makes as it dies.
