Aesop's Fables, translated by Laura Gibbs (2002)
372. THE HUNTER AND THE WOLF
Perry 404 (Syntipas
A certain hunter saw a wolf attacking a flock and tearing to pieces as
many of the sheep as he could. The hunter skilfully hunted down the wolf
and set his dogs on him. Then he shouted at the wolf, 'O you terrible
beast, where is that former strength of yours? You cannot even withstand
the attack of these dogs!'
This fable shows that each man makes his reputation in the field which
is his specialty.
