      The Fox and the Mosquitoes

Once there was a Fox who was crossing the river came near a bush and his tail entangled in it. He was so stuck in the bush that he was unable to move from there.

 A number of Mosquitoes seeing him settled upon it and enjoyed a good meal undisturbed by its tail.

 A hedgehog passing by took pity upon the Fox and went up to him: "You are in a bad way, neighbour," said the hedgehog; "shall I relieve you by driving off those Mosquitoes who are sucking your blood?"

"Thank you, Master Hedgehog," said the Fox, "but I would rather not."

"Why, how is that?" asked the hedgehog.

"Well, you see," was the answer, "these Mosquitoes have had their fill; if you drive these away, others will come with fresh appetite and bleed me to death."
