The Lion, the Donkey, and the Fox
Posted November 19, 2012on:
A foolish donkey and a sly Fox, somehow, became friends. One day having entered into a partnership together, went out into the forest to hunt. They had not gone far, when they met a Lion. The sly Fox well aware of the lion’s might, went to him and started flattering and pleasing with sweet words. She pleaded the lion that if he promises to spares her, she would arrange the capture of the donkey for him.
On his assuring her that he would not injure her, the Fox led the Donkey to a deep hollow. And she, made sure, that the Donkey should fell into it. Thinking that she is safe now stood aside waiting to see poor silly donkey become the delicious foodstuff for the lion.
The Lion, seeing that the Donkey was secured in the ditch, without any delay grabbed the Fox. So before the Fox could free herself from the strong grip of the mighty lion, the fresh flesh of the sly Fox contented the hunger of the king of the jungle.
The Lion ate the Donkey,later, at his leisure time.
Moral of the Story: We learn by the misfortunes of others.
