In the midst of a storm the Dogs watch their Master kill his Sheep, Goats, and Oxen in order to sustain himself. The Dogs decided to be safe and leave! He is not to be trusted as a friend who mistreats his own family.

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 Wolf and The Sheep

A Wolf asking a passing Sheep for water. The Sheep demurred saying that if he brought water he would become supper. Smart Sheep. Judge charity requests by actions, not words.

The Wolves and The Sheep

Wolves convinced the Sheep they would be better off without the guard Dogs which they dismissed. Should not have done that; the Sheep are now eaten. A foolish peace is more destructive than a bloody war.

The Pig, Sheep, and The Goat

The Fox and The Sick Lion

A sick lion called others to his cave. Many went in but none came out. Latecomers refused to go in. Smart! The wise learn from misfortunes of others.
