He would sit on the roof of the huts and thrust his tail through the rear door, scaring away the residents and forcing them to try and escape through the front door. When anybody would try to come out from the front door, he would grab him with his beak and feed on him. He would torment the locals by repeating the same thing every single day until the villagers got together and dug up these six caves for their gateway.
