He kills wantonly, when there can be no possible excuse, for the mere pleasure of it; and to Burkhardt's indignation frequently shot beasts whose skins and horns they did not even trouble to take.
Он охотится бессмысленно, без какой-либо осознанной причины, просто из удовольствия убивать и, к возмущению Буркхардта, часто добывал зверей, чьи шкура и рога ему не нужны.

The Abbe himself, with a blue apron tied round his waist, and his hands all soiled with his labour, became absorbed in it, and used it as an excuse for no longer going out.
А он, повязав синий передник, с таким усердием отдавался работе, что руки у него немели. Это служило для него предлогом, чтобы никуда не ходить.
