The wolf and the crane

When a wolf was eating an animal, a small bone from the meat got stuck in his throat. He could not swallow it, so he felt a terrible pain.

He ran up and down, and tried to find something to relieve the pain.

He tried to convince anyone to remove the bone. "I would give anything," he said, "if you would take it out."

At last the crane agreed to try. It told the wolf to open his mouth, and then put its long neck down the wolf’s throat. The crane loosened the bone with its beak, and finally got it out.

"Will you kindly give me the reward?" asked the crane.

The wolf showed his teeth, and said, "Be content,you have put your head into a wolf’s mouth and taken it out again in safety. That is a great reward for you."
