A half-starved fox, who saw in the hollow of an oak tree some bread and meat left there by shepherds, crept in and ate it.
With his stomach distended he could not get out again.
Another fox, passing by and hearing his cries and lamentations, came up and asked what was the matter.
On being told, he said : “Well, stay there till you are as thin as you were when you went in: then you’ll get out quite easily.”
