Aesop’s Fables – Der Wolf und der Löwe


Once upon a time, there was a Wolf. The wolf was hungry and was hunting. The Wolf managed to steal a sheep. He was happily carrying to sheep into the forest when he saw a Lion.


Es war einmal ein Wolf. Der Wolf hatte Hunger und jagte. Der Wolf schaffte es, ein Schaf zu stehlen. Er war glücklich, das Schaf in den Wald zu tragen, als er einen Löwen sah.


The Lion ran towards the Wolf. The lion is much stronger than the wolf. The Wolf had to drop the Sheep and run far away. The Lion took the Sheep and started walking towards the forest.


Der Löwe rannte auf den Wolf zu. Der Löwe ist viel stärker als der Wolf. Der Wolf musste das Schaf fallen lassen und weit weg rennen. Der Löwe nahm das Schaf und begann in Richtung Wald zu laufen.



The Wolf shouted from far away, “You have no right to take my property. How dare you? Have you no honour?”


Der Wolf rief von weitem: „Du hast kein Recht, mein Eigentum zu nehmen. Wie kannst du es wagen? Hast du keine Ehre? “


The Lion looked at the wolf. The wolf was far away and the Lion decided that it was not worth his time to chase and give him a good slap.


Der Löwe sah den Wolf an. Der Wolf war weit weg und der Löwe entschied, dass es seine Zeit nicht wert war, ihn zu jagen und ihm einen guten Schlag zu geben.

He said, “ROOOOAAAAR! Is it your property? Did you buy it? Did the farmer gift it to you? Or did you steal the lamb? Tell me!”


Er sagte: „ROOOOAAAAR! Ist es Ihr Eigentum? Hast du es gekauft? Hat der Bauer es dir geschenkt? Oder hast du das Lamm gestohlen? Sag mir!”
