Reynard the fox and the Eels

Reynard the fox and the Eels

A fisherman was returning home after a day by the river with his cart full of eels.

Reynard the fox saw him and immediately thought of a way of getting himself a sumptuous dinner. He lay down in the middle of the road and pretended to be dead.

When the fisherman saw him, he fell for the trick.

He picked up the fox, convinced that he had found himself a beautiful fox skin and put it on the back of his cart. Once on the move, Reynard emptied all the eels out into the road, gathered them up and ran off.

So the gullible fisherman lost both, his fox fur skin and his fish.
