Fable Aesop
The Wolves And The Sheep
printer friendly version
"Why should there always be this fear and slaughter between us?"
said the Wolves to the Sheep. "Those evil-disposed Dogs have
much to answer for. They always bark whenever we approach you
and attack us before we have done any harm. If you would only
dismiss them from your heels, there might soon be treaties of peace
and reconciliation between us." The Sheep, poor silly creatures,
were easily beguiled and dismissed the Dogs, whereupon the
Wolves destroyed the unguarded flock at their own pleasure.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
