An Ass, having put on the Lion's skin, roamed about in the forest
and amused himself by frightening all the foolish animals he met
in his wanderings. At last coming upon a Fox, he tried to frighten
him also, but the Fox no sooner heard the sound of his voice than
he exclaimed, "I might possibly have been frightened myself, if I
had not heard your bray."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
