The Lion, the Bear and the Fox (Greek Folk Tale)

Folk Tales, Greek Folk Tales4469

A Lion and a Bear were fighting for possession of a kid, which they had both seized at the same moment. The battle was long and fierce, and at length both of them were exhausted, and lay upon the ground severely wounded and gasping for breath. A Fox had all the time been prowling round and watching the fight: and when he saw the combatants lying there too weak to move, he slipped in and seized the kid, and ran off with it. They looked on helplessly, and one said to the other, “Here we”ve been mauling each other all this while, and no one the better for it except the Fox!”
