The Hare Afraid Of His Ears

by Aesop

The Hare feared that his ears might be mistaken for horns.

THE LION, being badly hurt by the horns of a goat, swore in great rage that every animal with horns should be banished from his kingdom. A silly Hare, seeing the shadow of his ears, was in great fear lest they should be taken for horns, and scampered away.
