    What does butcher's trade mean?

    This is from an Aesop's fable.
    The Wolf's song ended suddenly, and as he ran, with the Dogs at his heels, he called himself a fool for turning piper to please a Kid,
    when he should have stuck to his butcher's trade.


    What does "
    when he should have stuck to his butcher's trade" mean? Would you explain, please?
