after a departure, the rule says "Then, give a number of cards to your opponents:"
the card given to your opponents comes from your hand or from the draw?if from the draw, can you look at it first?
I think it's from your hand too. In the game setup, step 6 it says "Any remaining animals will not be used during this round...", which, to me, implies that the cards are taken from your hand.
Also, just found this reply from another thread:
From your hand.
The english rule book is not as clear as the original french rule book "Puis, vous donnez une certain nombre de cartes de votre main à vos adversaires". ("de votre main" means "from your hand").
