The Eagle and His Captor

AN EAGLE was once captured by a man, who immediately clipped his

wings and put him into his poultry-yard with the other birds, at

which treatment the Eagle was weighed down with grief. Later,

another neighbor purchased him and allowed his feathers to grow

again. The Eagle took flight, and pouncing upon a hare, brought

it at once as an offering to his benefactor. A Fox, seeing this,

exclaimed, "Do not cultivate the favor of this man, but of your

former owner, lest he should again hunt for you and deprive you a

second time of your wings."
