The She-Wolf and the Fox

Default Image

One day, a she-wolf invited a fox to be the godfather to her newborn and for dinner. They decided to look after the little cub together. After the meal was over, the fox told her that the cub was hungry and that they should get some food for it. He took her near a sheepfold and asked her to bring a sheep and said that he would bring a chicken. But the wily fox just sat and rested. When the she-wolf went to the sheepfold, the peasants poured hot water over her. She managed to escape and ran to the fox. He told her that the farmers had beaten him up and made her carry him back to his house. There he jumped off her back and laughed at her and said, “Farewell, I hope your burns have taught you a lesson!”
