A Bear boasted very much of his philanthropy, saying that of
all animals he was the most tender in his regard for man, for
he had such respect for him that he would not even touch his
dead body. A Fox hearing these words said with a smile to the
Bear, "Oh! that you would eat the dead and not the living."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
