"One of the spacers' laser-blasts fortunately missed its two-legged target... but struck the hapless bantha instead."

The Verpine Pera in Tun Aduban used a bobtail bantha to pull the bantha travois bearing the corpse of a borg to Spacer's Hill. This bantha appeared different from the common bantha in that it had much shorter fur, leaving its facial features and limbs distinctly visible. It also had a short, stubby tail. This bantha had been bobbed and shaven by its owner for unknown reasons, or might represent a distinct breed of bantha. Unfortunately, the Pera's bantha was accidentally shot in a fight that erupted when a number of spacers tried to prevent the borg's burial.
