A lamb was grazing with a flock of sheep one day. She soon found some sweet grass at the edge of the field. Farther and farther she went, away from the others.
She was enjoying herself so much that she did not notice a wolf coming nearer to her.
However, when it pounced on her, she was quick to start pleading:
“Please, please, don’t eat me yet. My stomach is full off grass . If you wait a while, I will taste much better”
The wolf thought that was a good idea, so he sat down and and waited. After a while...
The lamb said: “ If you allow me to dance, the grass in my stomach will be digested faster”
Again the wolf agreed.
While the lamb was dancing she has a new idea and said: “Please, take the bell from around my neck. If you ring it as hard as you can, I will be able to dance even faster ”
The wolf took the bell and rang it as hard as he could.
The shepherd heared the bell ringing and quickly sent his dogs to find the missing lamb...
The barking dogs frightened the wolf away and saved the lamb’s life.
