Old Cags is a wolf who has rabies, or the "foaming mouth disease." He has gone cag mag, which is old wolf for crazy. He likes in a pit called "the Pit," which has walls so steep that not even a bear could escape. "The Pit" is on Mac.Heath territory, and the Mac.Heaths worship him like a god that lives in his own, separate "heaven." If pups do not behave, they are sent to the pit, and are moonblinked. When a pup is moonblinked, it loses it's free will and becomes stony-eyed. They often don't live long. Old Cags is fond of names, and becomes furious is he does not learn his captor's name.
