This satirical map of Europe depicts soldiers of the Triple Alliance guarding their countries and hunting for the various animals that surround their territories. The hunt is successful because the animals run away from the soldiers in a panic. France is represented by cats, Britain by bulls, Belgium by a hare, Serbia by pigs, Japan by a monkey, Morocco by camels, and Russia by bears. Neutral countries Norway, Ireland and Switzerland are represented by civilians. At the bottom left is a poem by Dr. Storch, which describes the hunt.
