Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)
371. THE DONKEY AND THE WOLVES
Perry 348 (Chambry
There was a wolf who ruled over the other wolves and decreed that whatever
they might catch while hunting would be kept in common and divided equally
by the whole pack. A donkey who happened to be passing by remarked, 'What
a fine idea from the mind of a wolf! But how is it that yesterday I ran
into you and saw you hiding your quarry away in your lair?' Put to shame
by the donkey, the wolf abolished the law he had made.
