The Eagle & The Fox | Aesop's Fables

God is the ultimate judge.



An eagle and a fox became close friends and decided to start their families near one another to strengthen their friendship. The eagle built a nest at the top of a high tree, while the fox settled in a thicket at the foot of it and produced a litter of cubs. One day, the fox went out foraging for food, and the eagle, who also wanted food for her little eaglets, flew down into the thicket, caught up all of the fox's cubs, and carried them up into the tree for a meal for herself and her young.


When the fox came back and found out what had happened, though she was sorry for the loss of her cubs, she was even more furious because she couldn't reach the eagle in the tree and get her vengeance. So the fox just sat down not far off and cursed the eagle.


But it wasn't long before she had her revenge. Some villagers nearby were sacrificing a goat on a neighboring altar, and the eagle flew down and carried off a piece of burning flesh to her nest. A strong gust of wind came, and the embers from the burning flesh caused the nest to catch fire. Her eaglets, unable to fly, fell half roasted to the ground.


The fox immediately ran over and devoured them one by one, right in front of the eagle.
