The Fox and the Woodcutter

The Fox and The Woodcutter


Long ago, a fox which was being chased by hunters took refuge in the house of a woodcutter and asked him to conceal her.

The hunters paid no heed and went on their way. Afterwards, the fox came out of hiding and prepared to leave.

'Are you not even going to thank me?' complained the woodcutter.

'And should I thank you for what you said?' retorted the fox, 'Or for what you did?'
