The hungry fox and the cock [ A matter of trust ]

A fox was very hungry. He was walking here and there for hunt. Suddenly he saw a cock sitting on the branch of a tree.



The fox wanted to eat the cock, but he knew that he could not climb up the tree.

The fox is very clever he got other plan and said to the cock, “Why are you sitting on the tree?” Is it to save yourself from me? But now I can't hurt you.”

The cock asked, “Why this sudden change of hurt?”

The fox said, “I have to be good. It has been decided in a meeting that now animals cannot kill each other for food.”

The cock laughing and asked, “Do you mean to say that lions and tigers will eat grass from today?”

The fox had no answer but he could not longer wait to eat the cock.

So the fox said to the cock, “This is very good question. Come down and we will go to the king to discuss about this with him.”

The cock laughed and said, “We need not go to them. It is not necessary. ”

“Why not? ” asked the fox.

The clever cock replied, “Because I can see your friends coming here.”

“Who are they?” asked the fox.

The cock knew that the fox was afraid of the hounds because the hounds could kill him.

The cock said, “Some hounds are coming. ”

The fox got scared and tuned to run away. Then the cock laughed and asked, “Why are you running away? You said no animal would kill each other for food. ”



The fox said, “Maybe the hounds have not heard of this meeting. ”

The cock was glad that he had not trusted the fox because now it was clear that the fox had been telling lies also read the old tiger.
