The Wolf and the Lion

A Wolf, having stolen a lamb from a fold, was carrying him off to his lair. A Lion met him in the path, and seizing the lamb, took it from him. Standing at a safe distance, the Wolf exclaimed, 'You have unrighteously taken that which was mine from me!' To which the Lion jeeringly replied, 'It was righteously yours, eh? The gift of a friend?'
