Aesop’s Fables – Der Wolf und das gebratene Lamm


There was a Wolf which was roaming around a village. The Wolf was very hungry and was searching for scraps of food to eat.


Es gab einen Wolf, der durch ein Dorf herumstreifte. Der Wolf war sehr hungrig und suchte nach Essensresten.

There was a very delicious aroma coming from a house. The wolf slowly walked towards the house and saw through the window. He could see the Shepherd and his Family. There was a large roasted lamb on table.


Aus einem Haus kam ein sehr leckerer Geruch. Der Wolf ging langsam auf das Haus zu und sah durch das Fenster. Er konnte den Schafhirten und seine Familie sehen. Es war ein großes gebratenes Lamm auf dem Tisch


The Shepherd said, “There was a wolf which attacked this poor lamb. I had to save this poor lamb from the evil wolf.”


Der Hirte sagte: „Es gab einen Wolf, der dieses arme Lamm angegriffen hat. Ich musste dieses arme Lamm vor dem bösen Wolf retten. “


The Wolf said, “Ah! Such wicked people! They punish me for wanting to eat a sheep but they do the same thing and say that I am evil.”


Der Wolf sagte: „Ah! So böse Leute! Sie bestrafen mich, weil ich ein Schaf essen will, aber sie tun dasselbe und sagen, ich sei böse. “
