Ten years after Mowgli was allowed into the pack, the boy was going with the panther Baghira in the forest when it starts a conversation. Baghira tells the child about how Mowgli was a man and that a ferocious tiger named Shir-Can wanted to kill him and that the boy should kill the tiger using fire from the nearby human village. After this talk, Mowgli goes to the village, steals a pot of burning coals from a house, and goes back to the panther. They both go to the jungle rock where a meeting was being held.
At the meeting, some of the pack wanted to kill their leader and Mowgli and give Shir-Can all the authority. Mowgli calls them all dogs and sets them on fire. After setting the wolves on fire he abuses Shir-Can by beating him and telling him that he will murder the unhappy cat. He tells his wolf mom that he has to abandon her and her kids and go to the village to live there. He comforts her by saying that he will skin Shir-Can and sit on his fur at Jungle Rock.
