Spoilers! Animal Farm Ch. 9
Boxer dies. He collapses while carting boulders, and the pigs claim he'll be sent to the veterinarian. He's instead sent to a slaughter and glue-making place.
It's such a sad scene. The animals are all wishing him farewell, but Benjamin the old donkey reads the sign on the van. When they realize what's happening, they try to stop it but it's too late. They can't catch up and Boxer is too weak to kick his way out.
The rest of the chapter is boring, parades and pigs being pigs. The story has done a good job making me detest the creatures, because I'm sick of Squealer's lies.
One chapter left. I don't see this ending well.
