The story:

A tiger terrorising the jungle becomes even more dangerous when a careless hunter tries to kill him but only hits his paw. Weakened by his bullet injury, the tiger, now known as The Limper, begins to attack weaker prey, including humans.

The Phantom is alerted to the Llongo district, where The Limper continues to kill slower animals and those humans who still dare to venture outside their villages. The Phantom has no choice but to throw caution to the wind and enter the immensely dense and high grass that is the lair of the Limper...
