The Eagle and the woodcutter

The Eagle and the woodcutter:

Once, a woodcutter found an eagle which was caught in a trap. He was so taken with the beauty and the majesty of the bird that he let it go free.

Some time later, the woodcutter sat down on a rock on the very top of a steep hill. While he was having his lunch, the eagle dropped like lightning from the sky and flew away with his hat.

The man automatically ran down the hill after the bird, just as the rock on which he had been sitting gave way with a loud crash.

Thus the grateful eagle had repaid its benefactor.
