Fable Aesop
The Farmer And The Fox
printer friendly version
A Farmer, who bore a grudge against a Fox for robbing his poultry
yard, caught him at last, and being determined to take an ample
revenge, tied some rope well soaked in oil to his tail, and set it
on fire. The Fox by a strange fatality rushed to the fields of the
Farmer who had captured him. It was the time of the wheat harvest;
but the Farmer reaped nothing that year and returned home
grieving sorely.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
