He was feeling so hungry that he lost his concentration. He failed to notice where he was going.
In fact, He didn’t see that there was a deep ditch in the well.
Suddenly, He found himself slipping over the edge of the ditch and he couldn’t get any foothold.
The pebbles made the edge very slippery and, before he could grab anything, He crashed down.
Bruised and hurt, He scrambled to his feet and found himself stuck in the well.
There were no footholds by which he could reach the top. He tried to clamber up the sides. But here too, there was loose gravel. He kept slipping back.
Exhausted, He lay down in despair, Wondering How he was going to get out of the pit.
“Hello” He called, “Is there anyone up?” But there was no reply.

After a long time, He sat up as he heard some rustling outside the top of the ditch.
A head peered over the edge of the pit, It was a goat! ‘AH! finally, I can get out!.
Thought the fox I’ll have to make a fool of this stupid goat!’ He planned a trick.
Hello! he said aloud cheerfully. What are you doing down there? Goat asked the fox.
The cunning fox replied “Don’t you know? ,” Other Animals have said that there will be a terrible drought in the land!” All animals are in a search of enough water to protect themself from drought.
But What has that got you in the ditch? Asked the goat.
I was in a search of water for the last 2 days..
“Ah! I have found water here! and this water is the finest I have ever drunk,” replied the crafty fox, “why don’t you join me here? We’ll have enough water during the drought.”
The goat hardly thought about it and jumped into the ditch trusting the fox.
In a flash, the fox had climbed onto the goat’s back!
Before the goat could recover from her surprise, The fox leaped from the tip of the goat’s horns right out of the pit!
Fox said “Goodbye, Goat!”, Grinning at her,” You are really too trusting!”
The foolish goat realized where she had got into and begged the fox to help her out but the crafty and ungrateful fox was already on his way to the forest.
The fox mischiefly blamed the goat for not thinking about how to get out before jumping in.
No one came to help the goat and in the end, the goat sacrifices her life.
