The Wolf and the Crane

           


                                    



          A wolf killed a poor animal. He was devouring the animal. In the process a small bone got stuck in his throat. It gave him terrible pain. He ran up and down and requested each and every animal he had met to relieve him of his pain. None of the animals, however, felt sorry for the wolf, for as one of them said, “The bone that got stuck in the wolf’s throat might be of anyone of my clan.”


                     Finally the suffering wolf met a foolish crane.”I’ll give you anything you want, “he said, “If you take the bone out of my throat.”


                The crane was moved by his request and promise. He ventured his long neck down the throat of the wolf and drew the bone out. He then modestly demanded the promised reward.


              “Reward, “roared the wolf and showed his teeth, “What and ungrateful creature you are! I have not chewed your neck. That is the reward enough. Get out of this place before I pounce upon you.”


                                  Moral: “Those who expect much are often disappointed.”
