The Sparrows and the Elephant

Two sparrows lived in a nest on a tree. One morning, a wild elephant broke the branch on which their nest was built. All their eggs were destroyed but the sparrows flew away to safety.

The sparrows friend, the woodpecker, consoled them and said that she would think of a way to kill the elephant. She asked the gnat for help who in turn told them to take the frog’s help. The clever frog told the gnat to buzz near the elephant’s ears who would then close its eyes to listen to the music. Then the woodpecker would pluck its eyes out, and the frog would lead the elephant to the pit by its croaking.

The plan was put into action the next day. The elephant, after being blinded by the woodpecker, fell down into the pit and died and the sparrows were very happy.
