The Bat and the Weasels





A BAT who fell upon the ground and was caught by a Weasel pleaded

to be spared his life. The Weasel refused, saying that he was by

nature the enemy of all birds. The Bat assured him that he was

not a bird, but a mouse, and thus was set free. Shortly

afterwards the Bat again fell to the ground and was caught by

another Weasel, whom he likewise entreated not to eat him. The

Weasel said that he had a special hostility to mice. The Bat

assured him that he was not a mouse, but a bat, and thus a second

time escaped.



It is wise to turn circumstances to good account.
