...But the booze was in the mouth...

Title

...But the booze was in the mouth...

Description

The vain crow, a forest ranger, has been outwitted by the fox. This time he gives the crow a bottle of vodka and makes off with the trees that she is supposed to be guarding. The cartoon provides a harsh commentary on unprincipled behavior in many areas of the bureaucracy, especially the management of the environment.
