Once a fox was telling a wolf how strong man was and how difficult it was for an animal to overcome him. But the wolf boasted that if he could see a man, he would attack him at once and kill him.
The next day, the fox showed the wolf a hunter who was carrying a gun and a sword. The wolf attacked the hunter, but the hunter took his gun and fired back at him. The boastful wolf faced him bravely. Then the hunter fired another shot at the wolf. Though in pain, the wolf continued to fight with the hunter. This time the hunter used his sword and gave the wolf a few blows. Bleeding and howling, the wolf ran back to the fox and told him what had happened.
The fox gently told the wolf that he was boastful and that was why he was suffering now. The wolf had learnt his lesson.
