wise-fox-and-cock

Once there was an old woman. She lived in a cottage. There were a cock and some hens living in the same cottage. The cock was very proud but the hens were completely obedient and honest. One of the hens had an evil dream one night. She told it to the cock but he did not believe it.

She also told him to be careful but he did not care it. One day a fox came up. He flattered the cock praising him for his kingly look and sweet voice. The fox asked him to sing. Then the cock raised his head, closed his eyes and started singing loudly and beautifully.

The fox was very cleaver. He had a bad intention. He cleverly jumped upon the cock and seized him. The old woman did not hear the cock making the sound. But she heard the hen’s noise. She rushed out, but it was too late. The fox had already taken the cock away. The cock was killed and eaten by the fox.
