Story - Food sharing (Lion, wolf and fox) - Part I
In a dense green jungle lion, wolf and fox, three live with the utmost solidarity. They were sharing their food whoever brought it. But the sharing shouldn’t hurt the lion’s mind which was as a law of lion. The food sharing was in line with their strength and catching abilities.
One day all three animals left their habitat in search of food. Within a few minutes the lion chase a deer and caught it. The fox caught a couple of wild fowl for his part. But, wolf couldn’t find anything. Wolf thought in mind and satisfied that he would get a share eventhough who can't catch any prey. Lion and fox dragged their prey and reached to the habitat. They caught more than what usually they expected.
Lion said to wolf “divide this prey.” But, wolf hesitates to divide as who hadn’t bring for his part, said his opinion to the lion.
Wolf! “ It is true that you couldn’t bring any prey. However, usually we could share and eat the food in regardless of whoever brought it. You have your share, isn’t it? Why are you hesitating? “ divide this prey” asked lion.
After hearing from lion, wolf thought that may be lion is instructing him to divide half of his share. Based on this, wolf has divided lion’s share into three. When lion saw that share got angry. A hungry lion raged over the wolf and kill it and ate it.
