A Contract with a Goddess
When the battle was over, Slim and Slade introduce Jones to the Animal Cruelty Squad, a faction determined to kill all of the animals they would find. Later on, Ratcliffe, the Colonel and Eris appear with intentions of having the Cruelty Squad to accomplish a mission for them. The deal: cut a significant tree from the forest of Ferngully. Though Jones didn't take part in the deal, the rest of the hunters succeed to cut off the tree, although Eris didn't mention that the demon Hexxus was residing inside the tree.

Go for the Kill
