Heffer was tasked by his adoptive wolf family with bringing an elk home for dinner as a rite of passage. Heffer then masquerades as an elk at an elk party and meets Elkie, whom he immediately falls in love with. After going on several dates Heffer invites Elkie to meet his parents. To their horror, Heffer's wolf family plan to eat Elkie. Complicating things further, she finds out that Heffer was really a steer, which shakes her trust in him. Heffer stands up to his family and tells them he refuses to let his girlfriend be eaten, which doesn't save the relationship but at least allows for a less messy breakup.
