In scene one, Mother Wolf and Father Wolf enter. Father Wolf gets ready to hunt and Mother Wolf takes protective measures by dropping the cubs into the mouth of the cave. Tabaqui, the Jackal enters from the downhill towards Father Wolf and asks for a meal. It flatters the cubs of the Wolf and warns everyone about Shere Khan, who is going to hunt among those hills for the next moon.
Father Wolf gets angry on hearing about Shere Khan and his hunt among the hills. But Mother Wolf speaks quietly and tells all what she knows about Shere Khan. Tabaqui, who comes there as a messenger to inform about the hunt of Shere Khan, goes away quietly.
Among the bushes, they see a man-cub-holding on a low branch. Mother Wolf gets excited to have him in their midst. She thinks of rearing him along with her cubs, though Father Wolf was a bit hesitant. Shere Khan and Tabaqui come in search of the baby. They see that the man-cub had gone into the mouth of the cave and asks Father Wolf to give the baby to them. But Father Wolf sternly says that the man-cub belonged to them. When Shere Khan roars angrily at this, Mother Wolf springs forward, facing Shere Khan bravely. She says that the man-cub is hers. He shall live to run and hunt with the pack. In the end, he will hunt Shere Khan. So Shere Khan backs out growling that the man-cub will come to him one day.
