A Lion and a Bear captured a Kid at the same moment, and began to fight for it. Finally, they were so exhausted that they had to lie down. A Fox, who had been watching them all this time from a distance, thought it was the perfect moment to approach.
He seized the Kid in an instant and ran off with it as fast as he could. The Lion and the Bear saw him, but not being able to get up, said:
“How foolish we proved ourselves to be for not having shared the prey in a friendly way. Now we have nothing left, while the Fox will enjoy a great meal.”
