How Eagle Saved Monkey from Hyena
There’s a story of a hare that saved all the animals from becoming the lion’s dinner. The lion had requested that each day, an animal must be brought to him to eat, or he’d hunt them all down. The animals had obliged, each one living in fear that their turn to be dinner would be next. One day, it was the hare’s turn, but instead of shaking in fear, he smiled knowingly, and just before presenting himself, he rolled in the dirt, covering himself in mud. The lion turned his nose up at the unappetizing creature,, and the hare told him that he was supposed to deliver a big juicy hare, but another lion stole it from him! And, just as the hare suspected, the lion wanted to jealously fight this other lion, so hare led him to a well, pointed at lion’s reflection and told him that was his foe. The lion jumped in head-first, and never resurfaced.
