Dressing up as doddering old upper class twits, Tim and Graeme found ‘The Endangered Species Club’, shooting any animal they can find to use as a trophy or a novelty meal. Disgusted by his friend’s behaviour, Bill breaks into their club to complain – but they just point out that he also eats meat, and then proceed to hunt him! Months later, when his wounds have healed, Bill sets up a sanctuary for endangered species, developing ways for the vulnerable creatures to defend themselves. Graeme presents Bill with a present, the last ever dodo, but the rare bird proves to be more trouble than its worth, with its ear-splitting squawking, obnoxious behaviour, and propensity to leave its dropping everywhere. Graeme and Tim finally have enough, and they throw the dodo - and Bill - out on the street and then return to their club; unfortunately, they discover that all the endangered species have eaten each other; with the club doomed, Graeme and Tim realise they can still hunt the dodo, so they set off to Bill’s new Dodo Sanctuary to find the annoying bird and blast it into extinction…
