[ Man ] We're all familiar

with the illegal poaching...

of endangered animals

in the wild...

but never before has an animal in

captivity been slaughtered for its pelt.

Animal protection groups

that monitor the international trade...

in game contraband

have further told us...

that a white Siberian tiger

is so rare that the offer...

- of a pelt would surely

draw the attention...

- [ Growling, Barking ]

- of law enforcement agencies.

- [ Whimpering ]

Shortly before dawn this morning...

security staff at London Zoo

discovered the excoriated carcass...

of its prized three-year-old

female Siberian tiger, Sue Ling.

- [ Growling ]

- Police sources have suggested...

that the killing was contracted

by a private collector.

Oh, isn't that horrible?

Who'd do a thing like that?

lf the battle to preserve

endangered species has moved

into the urban zoological park...

we must ask ourselves if

any animal in the world is safe.

- This is Tim Ryan,

reporting from London Zoo.

[ Sighing ] Another bad day

for the animal kingdom.

Oh, one day...

very soon, Pongo,

l'm going to make a sale.

We're fast approaching the point

where l'm gonna have to start

eating your table scraps.

[ Barking ]

- [ Whining ]

- Oh.

l was exaggerating.

Well, shall we?

[ Sighing ] lt's not that bad.

lt's very important

this meeting goes well.

You know how l am about meetings.

l tend to get a little, well, nervous.

When l get nervous, l say things, l do

things l shouldn't say, l shouldn't do.

- And the next thing

we know, freelancing.

[ Barking, Music, Sound Effects ]

He's got the best instincts

in the industry.

Since he was six, he's picked

the top-selling game every year.

- [ Barking ]

- Ow!

[ Barking ]

[ Sighing ]

Well?

What do you think?

Potentially good graphics,

reasonably entertaining premise...

the dog's well-conceived

and the environments are engaging.

But l'm not interested

in a game that has...

a chubby little dogcatcher

as the bad guy.

Even girls won't like this game.

- Sorry, mate.

- Yeah, but wait, wait, wait.

Herbert, wait!

What if there were a better villain?

You know, someone you could really hate?

lt's not hatred that's important.

lt's a desire to annihilate.

Morning, Ma'am.

Morning, Miss De Vil's office.

Could you hold, please?

Yes, l'll be with you in a moment.

Could you hold, please?

Thank you. Good morning,

Miss De Vil's office. Could you hold?

Good morning, Miss De Vil.

Morning, Ma'am.

- [ Gasping ]

- Anita, darling.

Good morning, Cruella.

- [ Cruella ] What a charming dog.

- Thank you.

- Spots?

- Yes, she's dalmatian.

- lnspiration?

- Yes.

- Long hair or short?

- Short.

- Coarse or fine?

- l'm afraid it is a little coarse.

- Pity!

- But it was very fine

when she was a puppy.

Redemption! We need to have

a little girl talk.

Come to my office.

Bring the drawing.

Now, darling, tell me

more about these spots.

l did leopard spots

in the '80s.

Well, dalmatian spots are

a little different, aren't they?

- Cozy. Classic.
