Aesop's Fables: Townsend (1867)
220. The Lion and the Three Bulls (Perry
THREE BULLS for a long time pastured together. A Lion lay in ambush in
the hope of making them his prey, but was afraid to attack them while
they kept together. Having at last by guileful speeches succeeded in separating
them, he attacked them without fear as they fed alone, and feasted on
them one by one at his own leisure.
Union is strength.
