The Lion, The Fox, and The Ass

A lion hunted with others. When it came time to divide the spoils the lion killed those who attempted to divide thing evenly. The fox learned and lived. Happy is the man who learns from the misfortunes of others.

A Stag and A Lion

A deer being chased tries to hide in a cave with a lion in it. Bad move. Bye, bye deer. Everything, including death, can be done easy or hard.

The Stag, The Wolf, and The Sheep

A Stag asked to borrow wheat from a Sheep and said he would leave a Wolf as a bond. The Sheep, understandably, did not think much of this offer. Two wrongs do not make a right.

The Wild Ass and The Lion

The lion allied with other animals to hunt so that more prey could be caught. When it came time to divide the spoils the lion made it clear all was his. Might makes right.

The Sick Stag

Visitors to a sick Stag each ate some of his food. The Stag died of hunger not illness. Evil friends are no comfort.
