THE SHEPHERD, THE WOLF CUB AND THE WOLF
A shepherd brought a new-born wolf cub. He raised it along with his hounds. When the cub grew up, it would join the hounds in the chase whenever a prowling wolf stole a sheep. In case the hounds could not keep up with the other wolf and turned back for home, the wolf continued to chase the other wolf. Thus, the shepherd’s wolf received his share from the booty. If, no wolves stole any sheep, then he would slaughter one of the sheep and shared it with the hounds. The shepherd was worried about the drastically reducing size of his herd of sheep. When he could find out the real reason, he realized that a wolf will always remain a wolf irrespective of its upbringing. The shepherd then shot the wolf dead.
