The Lion, the Wolf and the Fox

The Lion, the Wolf and the Fox


The lion was near to death and all the other animals tried to fawn on him, hoping to be named as his heir.

The wolf tried to discredit the fox by telling the lion that the fox had not even bothered to visit the king. The fox arrived just at the right moment to overhear this.

'Who could love you more than me?' the fox asked the lion. 'For I have been all around the world, in search of the miraculous cure I bring you!'

'And what is it?' asked the lion.

'If you want to get well again, skin a live wolf, replied the fox, 'and wrap yourself in the fur while it is still warm!'

The wolf ran out of the place.
