A lot of mysteries are taking place as the local news reports announces that 3 men have either been severely beaten or mauled by wild animals. Speculation on these deaths are running amock in the city. It's up to Green Arrow and his son Conner to sort out the mess. When reports come out that it could have been a person of color, the police sweep the city for black men.

Green Arrow and Conner witness one cop using his methods of racial profiling to take in a young black man for questioning. Could have worse things have happened if Green Arrow and Conner didn't intervine? That is the question that goes through Conner's mind as they patrol the streets. It is discovered that they actually have a monster on their hands. When they discover that actually they have many monsters to deal with, Green Arrow can only mutter one word......'crap'.
