He leaves offerings for the beast, as a form of bribery, telling the other boys that it might them leave them alone. He does in effect elevate the beast to a primative godlike status, a god which he says needs to be placated with offerings.

Ralph never really describes the beast. But when Jack, Roger, and he see the supposed beast in the end of chapter seven "Shadows and Tall Trees" it is described by the narrator as "something like a great ape was sitting asleep with its head between its knees." Then goes on to explain how when the wind blew it lifted its head. The beast is really a dead parachutist and when the wind blew the head lifted because of how the parachute was wrapped around the corpse. This only appeared to be something different because of how dark it was.

Jack uses the belief of the beast to instill fear in his tribe thus he can provide a feeling of security. Some may say that Jack being only 12, may actually believe in the beast and think he is providing real security.

Jack described the beast as a hunter. He leaves if the offering of a pig's head and guts and advises his hunters to do the same when they make a kill. Jack never explains what he believes the nature of the beast to be. He simply seems to advise the boys in his tribe that its existence is a simple fact and that alowances and precautions should be made to take this into account.
