Aesop's Fables

The Herdsman And The Lost Bull

A Herdsman was tending his cattle when he missed a young Bull, one of the finest of the herd.
      
      He went at once to look for him, but, meeting with no success in his search, he made a vow that, if he should discover the thief, he would sacrifice a calf to Jupiter.
      
      Continuing his search, he entered a thicket, where he presently espied a lion devouring the lost Bull.
      
      Terrified with fear, he raised his hands to heaven and cried, "Great Jupiter, I vowed I would sacrifice a calf to thee if I should discover the thief: but now a full-grown Bull I promise thee if only I myself escape unhurt from his clutches."
