The Wolf and the Sheep

A wolf that had been bitten by a dog, and was in a very sad case, being unable to move, called to a Sheep that was passing by and begged her to fetch him some water from the neighboring stream. "For if you," said he, "will bring me a drink, I will find meat myself."

"Yes," said the Sheep, "I make no doubt of it; for, if I come near enough to give you the drink, you will soon make mince-meat of me."
