Aesop's Fables

The Eagle And His Captor

A Man once caught an Eagle, and after clipping his wings turned him loose among the fowls in his hen-house, where he moped in a corner, looking very dejected and forlorn.
      
      After a while his Captor was glad enough to sell him to a neighbour, who took him home and let his wings grow again.
      
      As soon as he had recovered the use of them, the Eagle flew out and caught a hare, which he brought home and presented to his benefactor.
      
      A fox observed this, and said to the Eagle, "Don't waste your gifts on him! Go and give them to the man who first caught you; make him your friend, and then perhaps he won't catch you and clip your wings a second time."
