Satirical maps, one of the favorite toys of propagandists from World War I, usually look the same; however, in this case, the amusing text makes all the difference. On the map issued in Germany and called European Beating Hunt (Europäische Treibjagd), Europe is represented as a zoo where the animals are rebelling, and the people, Germany and Austria-Hungary, of course, have to calm them down.
The beaten British dogs are trying to escape even their islands, but Ireland is looking at them skeptically. France is inhabited by cats, chickens, and monkeys, and the Belgian hare is already caught. The Russian bears are roaring in anger and going away while the Japanese monkey is confused. The Serbian pigs and Montenegrin sheep have nowhere to run. Meanwhile, the cruiser Goeben is chasing the Moroccan camels.
The text tells us how the Russian bear, the Gallic rooster, and the British bulldog decided to exterminate their masters, and then the rest of the ungrateful creatures joined them. But they were destined to return to their cages soon.
