The Wolf and the Lamb

By Admin on 09-03-2010

A
lamb was grazing with a flock of sheep one day. She soon found some sweet grass
at the edge of the field. Farther and farther she went, away from the others. She
was enjoying herself so much that she did not notice a wolf coming nearer to
her.

However,
when it pounced on her, she was quick to start pleading, “Please, please don’t
eat me yet. My stomach is full of grass. If you wait a while, I will taste much
better.” The wolf thought that was a good idea, so he sat down and waited.

After
a while, the lamb said, “If you allow me to dance, the grass in my stomach will
be digested faster.” Again the wolf agreed.

While
the lamb was dancing, she had a new idea. She said, “Please take the bell from
around my neck. If you ring it as hard as you can, I will be able to dance even
faster.” The wolf took the bell and rang it as hard as he could.

The
shepherd heard the bell ringing and quickly sent his dogs to find the missing
lamb. The barking dogs frightened the wolf away and saved the lamb’s life.
