A Fox entered into partnership with a Lion on the pretense of becoming
his servant. Each undertook his proper duty in accordance with his
own nature and powers. The Fox discovered and pointed out the prey;
the Lion sprang on it and seized it. The Fox soon became jealous of
the Lion carrying off the Lion's share, and said that he would no
longer find out the prey, but would capture it on his own account.
The next day he attempted to snatch a lamb from the fold, but he himself
fell prey to the huntsmen and hounds.
