DLTK's Educational Activities:  Aesop's Fables
The Bulls and the Lion

bulls and lion fableA lion had been watching three bulls feeding in an open field.  He had tried to attack them several times, but they kept together and helped each other to drive him off.

The lion had little hope of eating them, for he was no match for three strong bulls with their sharp horns and hoofs.  But he could not keep away from that field, for it is hard to resist watching a good meal, even when there is little chance of getting it.

Then one day the bulls had a fight.  When the hungry lion came to lick his chops and watch them as he did each day, he found them in separate corners of the field, as far away from one another as they could get.

It was now an easy matter for the lion to attack the bulls one at a time.


Don't forget:  united we stand, divided we fall!
