THE WOLF AND THE CRANE
A Wolf had a bone stuck in his throat, and could not cough it up. He called the Crane, and said to him:
"Crane, you have a long neck. Thrust your head into my throat and draw out the bone! I will reward you."
The Crane stuck his head in, pulled out the bone, and said:
"Give me my reward!"
The Wolf gnashed his teeth and said:
"Is it not enough reward for you that I did not bite off your head when it was between my teeth?"
