Fable Aesop
The Bull And The Goat
printer friendly version
A Bull, escaping from a Lion, hid in a cave which some shepherds
had recently occupied. As soon as he entered, a He-Goat left in
the cave sharply attacked him with his horns. The Bull quietly
addressed him: "Butt away as much as you will. I have no fear
of you, but of the Lion. Let that monster go away and I will soon
let you know what is the respective strength of a Goat and a Bull."

It shows an evil disposition to take advantage of a friend in distress.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
