An Ant came down to the brook : he wanted to drink. A wave washed him down and almost drowned him.
A Dove was carrying a branch; she saw the Ant was drowning, so she cast the branch down to him in the brook. The Ant got up on the branch and was saved. Then a hunter placed a snare for the Dove, and was on the point
of drawing it in. The Ant crawled up to the hunter and
bit him on the leg ; the hunter groaned and dropped the
snare. The Dove fluttered upwards and flew away.
