When Edwina fails to produce any eggs, hard-nosed Mrs. Tweedy decides it is time
for her to become a different offering on the food pyramid. Edwina and the other hens know the consequences of not laying an egg, and so Edwina is rightly scared when Mrs Tweedy approaches the henhouse.

Finding Edwina has not laid an egg, Mrs Tweedy takes
Edwina to her house, chops off the chicken's head (which the audience only witnesses through Mrs. Tweedy's
shadow movements, in order to keep the film within "PG" classifcation), and next thing you
know Edwina is just a pile of bones on a dinner plate.

PG must be a reference to the US rating - since it got a 'U' here and is thus suitable for all ages.
Comment 2 by 'Monk' (reply to this comment)
I think this should be innocent bystander as you wouldn't put down deaths of Mufasa or Scar as creatures.
Comment 3 by 'Matt' (reply to this comment)
I believe 'Creature' applies to animals too.
Comment 4 by 'Monk' (reply to this comment)
I mean Mufasa wold be down as goody (minor) and Scar as baddy (major), oiin other words not all deaths of animals should be under creature.
Comment 5 by 'Kooshmeister' (reply to this comment)
Yeah, Edwind should count as a character shouldn't she? Why not say General Woundwort is a creature, too?
Comment 6 by 'MCTales89' (reply to this comment)
Wouldn't this also count as "Execution"?
