El Sr. Lobo tenía mucha hambre y estaba buscando comida. Vio a un pastor dirigiendo a un gran número de ovejas.
He thought, “Oh, lucky me. I shall have one of those sheep for lunch”.
When he was near the sheep, they started to cry out loudly.Translate
Pensó: “Oh, qué suerte la mía. Almorzaré una de esas ovejas.”.
Cuando estuvo cerca de las ovejas, éstas comenzaron a gritar en voz alta.
The farmer came with stick and chased the wolf away. The wolf was thinking of a plan to catch the sheep when he saw some sheepskin next to the trees.
“I have a cunning plan”, he said to himself.Translate
El pastor vino con una rama y ahuyentó al Lobo. El Lobo estaba pensando en un plan para atrapar a una oveja cuando vio una piel de oveja junto a los árboles.
“Tengo un plan astuto.”, se dijo.
He wore the sheepskin all around himself and he looked exactly like a sheep. He went in and all the sheep thought that the wolf was just another sheep. He quickly led one sheep away into the forest and killed it for lunch.Translate
Usó la piel de oveja para envolverse y verse exactamente como una oveja. Entró y todas las ovejas pensaron que el Lobo era una oveja más. Rápidamente se llevó una oveja al bosque y la mató para almorzar.
