The animals of the forest had a lion as their king. He was neither cruel, nor tyrannical, but a just and gentle king.
As king, he made a royal proclamation for a general assembly of all the animals. He passed a law, stating, “All animals will now live together in perfect peace and friendship. The wolf and the lamb, the cat and the bird, the tiger and the deer, the fox and the rabbit, will no longer be enemies.”
作为国王, 他宣布为所有动物召开一个大会。他立了一项法律声明：“所有的动物从此将和平、友善地相处。狼和羊， 猫和鸟，老虎和鹿，狐狸和兔子将不再是敌人。”
The rabbit said, “ Oh, how I have longed to see this day, in which the weak will be equal to the strong.” And after saying this, he ran for his life.
兔子说：“哦，我早就期待看到这一天了! 这样，弱者和强者就平等了。”说完这些以后， 他立即跑开逃命去了。
