The Rooster And The Fox

One evening, long, long ago the sun was setting and it was the time that most birds fly to their roosts for the night. A wise old rooster flew up to his perch in a tree to get ready for sleep.

Suddenly, his sharp eyes caught a flash of red, a glimpse of a long pointed nose and a white-tipped tail. There, at the foot of the tree stood a fox.

“Surely, you’ve heard the wonderful news?” cried the fox all excited.

“News, what news?” asked the rooster, who was a bit nervous as he had always been afraid of the fox.

The fox replied, “There has been a big meeting of all the animals and everyone has agreed to live as friends in peace and harmony from now on. Can you imagine? I’m so happy that all I want to do is to give you a great big hug!”
