The Lion's Share

Default Image

One day a lion went hunting with a fox, a jackal and a wolf in the forest. After hunting for a long time, they killed a stag.

Now the question arose as to how the game would be divided among the four. The lion was very clever and ordered, “Divide the stag into four parts. The first part is mine as I am the king of the jungle, the second is also mine since I am the judge in this case and the third should also be given to me for my part in the chase. The last part is for you both. You can share it equally” He challenged them to try and claim their part. Frightened of the lion’s might, the others didn’t dare.

The fox was very disappointed and grudgingly said to himself, “One may help the great in their mission but cannot claim to get an equal share.”
