Shortly after, from among the cane fields of the swamp, emerged a gigantic black tiger that pounced on one of the criminals and struck him down with a single swipe of its claw, without harming the other companions.

This pattern repeated with the other criminals, one after another.

Wherever one of the killers was, the tiger appeared, selecting the guilty one without hesitation and eliminating him.

All the criminals succumbed to the relentless claw of the Yaguareté Tié, and since then, there is no memory of the tiger attacking anyone else…

This tiger was none other than the good peasant turned beast, by unknown influences, to avenge his own death. Even today, the black tiger wanders through the cane fields.

Although it is true that he does not attack anyone, as he has already fulfilled his purpose, everyone fears him for his supernatural origin, hoping that one day he will disappear from the swamps to the relief of the inhabitants, who live with the constant expectation of that prodigious event…

A wonderful story with characteristic elements of those narratives of ancestral cultures.
