The Wolf and the Crane

A Wolf had been feasting too greedily, and a bone had stuck crosswise in his throat. He could get it neither up nor down, and of course, he could not eat a thing. Naturally, that was an awful state of affairs for a greedy Wolf.

So away he hurried to the Crane. He was sure that she, with her long neck and bill, would easily be able to reach the bone and pull it out. “I will reward you very handsomely”, said the Wolf, “if you pull that bone out for me”.

The Crane, as you can imagine, was very uneasy about putting her head in Wolf’s throat. But she was grasping in nature, so she did what the Wolf asked her to do. When the Wolf felt that the bone was gone, he started to walk away.

“But what about my reward!” called the Crane anxiously.

“What!” snarled the Wolf, whirling around. “Haven’t you got it? Isn’t it enough that I let you take your head out of my mouth without snapping it off?”

Moral: Expect no reward for serving the one who has no honor. Staying in a company of selfish people will not do anyone any favor.

    Expect no reward for serving the one who has mo hornor. Staying in the company of selfish people will not do anyone any favor. I like that sentence, It help me doing my homework at Stemhouse school. Very nice and ver interesting story, I love it!!!

  2. Love it 😻🤘

  3. Good story but do not be the wolf.

  4. good and nice

  5. the crane should have done it without a rewarde it is nice to do, the wolf/fox was in awful state

  6. As a rebuttal, I’d like to offer a short addendum to this classic cautionary tale:

    The crane, incensed at having been cheated out of her reward, chased down the wolf, pecked his eyes out with her long, sharp beak, and then flew off to safety while cackling, satisfied by the knowledge that she had at least gotten the last laugh in every sense of the phrase.

    The Moral: You get what you pay for. Don’t be a self-entitled jerk who expects people to work for free, unless, of course, you want an angry crane to peck your eyes out.

  7. I always write my homework from this websites and read for my parichya
