Fabula Facilis: Vulpes et Mulieres

Vulpes iuxta villam quandam transit.
Catervam mulierum videt,
et alto silentio mulieres comedunt
gallinas plurimas, opipare assatas.
Ad mulieres conversa, vulpes dicit,
"Qui clamores contra me essent,
et qui canum latratus,
si ego facerem quod vos facitis!"
Quaedam anus vulpi respondet,
"Nos quae nostra sunt comedimus;
tu, o pessima animalium, fur es
et semper aliena comedis."

This story is based on 54. Vulpes et Mulieres.
