|A giant has come to town!!

Dear Lady Catherine & Co.,
We are residents of a small town (quite small, some might say, although we fancy ourselves large enough). Our lives were quite pleasant until just the other day, when suddenly a giant washed up on our shores! You can imagine our terror at the sight of a creature so many hundreds of times larger than ourselves. He can hold several townspeople in his hand! Of course, we don't encourage the townspeople to get that close to him, as we fear that he will eat them. He does not speak our language, but has managed to communicate that he is called Gulliver; what an odd name!
We are quite hospitable to him, and have even let him out of the ties with which we held him for the first few days, but there are a few problems. To start with, he is such a drain on our resources! He can drink hundreds of barrels of our beer and eat several thousand of our livestock each day. We are running short of provisions and soon we fear we will starve to keep him satisfied. In addition, what of our children? They like to play and see the giant as a playmate, but we fear he is too dangerous for them. Their favorite game is to get into his gaping jaws while he sleeps and see who can stay there the longest. We fear that one night he may close his mouth and - SNAP!! - no more children!
Please advise what to do to get rid of this monstrosity that is taxing our town. We welcome any advice you may have.
