Aesop's fable

​Lesson 52

 Wolf in sheep's clothing










One day, a wolf decided to disguise himself. He thought that this would not only get rid of the hunter's pursuit, but also facilitate the predation. He put on a sheepskin, disguised himself as a sheep, and mixed into the flock.


He lowered his head and pretended to eat grass, hiding from the shepherd's eyes. When night fell, the wolf who had been locked in the sheepfold by the shepherd was about to start enjoying his food. The shepherd opened the sheepfold and planned to kill a sheep to make dinner for himself. He chose the sheep disguised by the wolf at a glance, grabbed him, and killed him with one knife.


[Meaning of a wolf in sheep's clothing]


Aesop's fable, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, tells us that cleverness is mistaken by cleverness, and stealing chickens will cost you your life. So still do it yourself.
