    The Ass, the Cock, and the Lion
There was an ASS and a Cock who were living in a straw-yard together. At that time a Lion, starved from hunger, came near them.

 He was about to spring upon the Ass, when the Cock crowed loudly, and the Lion ran away as fast as he could.

 The Ass, observing  the crowing of a Cock gathered courage to attack him, and run after him for that purpose.

 He had run no long distance, when the Lion, turning about, seized him and tore him to pieces.

Moral: False confidence often leads into danger.
