Geralt: You Mislav?
Mislav: Shhh. Hear that?
Geralt: Wolves? No - wild dogs.
Mislav: Yes... more dangerous than wolves.
Geralt: Dogs more dangerus than wolves? Don't think so.
Mislav: It's the truth. Know why?
Geralt: No, but I guess you're about to tell me?
Mislav: Wolves hunt to fill their bellies. wild dogs kill for sport.
Geralt: Just like humans.
Mislav: Aye, they've learned much from us. Why not cruelty, too?
Geralt: I'm hunting bigger game. The Nilfgaardians the Griffin killed - where'd you find them?
Mislav: Ah, I see... You a witcher? That monster slayer they's takin' about in the village?
Mislav: I'll show you, sure. But, er, I gotta kill those muts' fore they hurt someone. Will you help? That is, if you dont mind blunting your silver blades on'em
Geralt: Sure, Griffin's not going anywhere
Mislav: No, dogs might, though. So step careful now. Come on.
Geralt: These dogs been a problem for a while now?
Mislav: Since the war started. Soldier on the march, he'll stop to rape a woman, strangle 'er, kill her man for a chuckle, even butcher a cow. But a dog? A kick in passin', no more. So these stray mutts form packs. They're gaunt, guts stuck to their spines, covered in scabies... but they just won't die. Too late. Attacked another one.
- This is an optional objective. If you did not agree to help the hunter kill the Wild Dogs, he kills them on his own. You will have to wait a bit until he finishes killing them all before the quest objective advances.
