Mrs. Packletide was daring and bold enough to go for hunting a tiger which was old and weak. She was not a good shooter. Inspite of all the arrangements, she was not able to shoot the old tiger who was walking very slowly. Instead of shooting tiger she shot the goat as she had missed her aim..
Mrs. Packletide was not at all a good shooter. This statement can be justified by the action where she was supposed to shoot the tiger but instead shot the bait, the goat. She spent so much money on this shoot but all in vain as she did not shoot her target. However, she was a cunning lady who took a chance and changed the fake to reality by declaring that she had shot the tiger, truth being otherwise.
