My favorite scene was in the 7 chapter. The animals hear that Snowball has been visiting the farm at night, in secret, and sabotaging the animals efforts. Napoleon says that he can detect Snowball’s presence everywhere, and whenever something appears to go wrong by chance, Snowball receives the blame. One day, Squealer announces that Snowball has sold himself to Mr. Frederick’s farm, Pinchfield, and that the treacherous pig has been in league with Mr. Jones from the start. He recalls Snowball’s attempts at the Battle of the Cowshed to have the animals defeated. The animals hear these words in  astonishment. They remember Snowball’s heroism and recall that he received a medal. Boxer, in particular, is completely baffled. But Napoleon and Squealer convince the others that Snowball’s apparent bravery was simply part of his treacherous plot. They also work to convince the animals of Napoleon’s superior bravery during that battle. So vividly does Squealer describe Napoleon’s alleged heroic actions that the animals are almost able to remember them.

Four days later, Napoleon meets with all of the animals in the yard. With his nine huge dogs ringed around him and growling, he forces certain animals to confess to their participation in a conspiracy with Snowball and then has the dogs tear out these supposed traitors throats. The dogs, apparently without orders, even attack Boxer, who effortlessly knocks them away with his huge legs. But four pigs and numerous other animals meet their deaths, including the hens who rebelled at the proposal to sell their eggs. The bloodshed leaves the animals deeply confused. After Napoleon leaves, Boxer says that he would never have believed that such a thing could happen on Animal Farm. He adds that the tragedy must owe to some fault in the animals themselves ,therefore, he commits to working even harder.

What baffles my is that nobody really can’t see what Napoleon is doing. Napoleon is killing innocent animals and all the other animals don’t see it. They just blame themselves and work even harder. I like this seen because I don’t understand it.:D
