The Hares were so persecuted by the other beasts, they did not
know where to go.
As soon as they saw a single animal approach them, off they used to run.
One day they saw a troop of wild
Horses stampeding about, and in quite a panic all the Hares
scuttled off to a lake hard by, determined to drown themselves rather than live in such a continual state of fear.
But just as
they got near the bank of the lake, a troop of Frogs, frightened in their turn by the approach of the Hares scuttled off, and
jumped into the water.
"Truly," said one of the Hares, "things are
not so bad as they seem, there is always someone worse
off than yourself"
