Curley's wife is terribly lonely. She seeks companionship with the only person who will talk to her. She finds Lennie with his dead puppy in the barn. Lennie has smothered his puppy to death. Curley's wife allows Lennie to stroke her hair and things go downhill from there. Curley's wife panics and Lennie, thinking he will get in trouble from George, inadvertently kills her. 

I mint to say : what is the nature of his attack
