Go back to The Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

Fable Aesop (620 BC - 560 BC)
The Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

Once upon a time a Wolf resolved to disguise his appearance
in order to secure food more easily. Encased in the skin of a
sheep, he pastured with the flock deceiving the shepherd by
his costume. In the evening he was shut up by the shepherd
in the fold; the gate was closed, and the entrance made
thoroughly secure. But the shepherd, returning to the fold
during the night to obtain meat for the next day, mistakenly
caught up the Wolf instead of a sheep, and killed him instantly.
Harm seek. harm find.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
