农夫和冻僵的蛇

Story Brief

The Countryman and the Snake

A countryman returning home one winter’s day found a snake by the hedge-side, half dead with cold.

Taking compassion on the creature, he laid it in his bosom and brought it home to his fireside to revive it. No sooner had the warmth restored it, than it began to attack the children of the cottage.

Upon this the countryman, whose compassion had saved its life, took up a club and laid the snake dead at his feet.
