161. The Bull, the Lioness, and the Wild-Boar Hunter (Perry
A BULL finding a lion's cub asleep gored him to death with his horns.
The Lioness came up, and bitterly lamented the death of her whelp. A wild-boar
Hunter, seeing her distress, stood at a distance and said to her, 'Think
how many men there are who have reason to lament the loss of their children,
whose deaths have been caused by you.'
