狼和牧羊人
THE WOLF AND THE SHEPHERD

【狼和牧羊人的寓言故事】

 

  一隻狼跟在羊群後面很長時間了,但是卻沒有打擾他們。起先,牧羊人一直提心吊膽地盯著狼,因為他本能地以為狼是個壞蛋。可是隨著時間的推移,狼卻絲毫沒有要攻擊羊群的跡象,牧羊人便以為這是一個保護者,而非敵對者。終於有一天,牧羊人要進城辦事,便把羊群留給狼守護。然而,就在牧羊人剛轉身走開時,狼就襲擊了羊群,並且殺死了大部分羊。牧羊人回來後,見此情景十分後悔,哭喊道:“我竟然把羊群托付給一隻狼,真是活該呀!”

THE WOLF AND THE SHEPHERD

  A wolf followed the sheep for a long time, but did not disturb them. At first, the shepherd kept staring at the wolf with trepidation, because he instinctively thought the wolf was a bad guy. But over time, the wolf showed no sign of attacking the flock, and the shepherd thought it was a protector, not an enemy. Finally, one day, the shepherd wanted to go to the city to run errands, so he left the flock to the wolf to guard. However, just as the shepherd turned away, the wolf attacked the sheep and killed most of them. When the shepherd came back, he was very regretful when he saw the scene, and cried out, "I really deserve to entrust my sheep to a wolf!"
