"The Wolf and the Cows"

A fable by Rory Stanfield

Fable

One day a hungry wolf was roaming the forest when he came upon a field of cows. The wolf thought of a plan and went to his den, coming out a minute later holding his cow pelt. He tossed it on his back and ducked under the fence of the pasture. He crept closer and closer to the cows, pausing every minute to "graze". Most of the cows were oblivious to him, but one calf saw him and spread the word. But, because he was only a calf no one believed him. When the wolf was close enough to make the kill, only then did the cows start to realize the wolf wasn't a cow. The wolf killed all of the cows, and ate happily. Then, the farmer came, but he was half blind and didn't see all the cows were dead. He saw the wolf, mistaking him for a cow, and put a collar around the wolf that was meant for the cows. The farmer lead him to a shed. The wolf was never seen again.
Moral: What goes around comes around.
