Once in a forest, there lived a lion who was very hungry as he did not eat anything for 5 days. He once saw a rabbit asleep under the tree. He quietly crept behind him and caught it. Just as he was about to bite it's throat, thus killing him, he saw two deer run past him. He left the rabbit alone under the tree and told him not to go anywhere while he hunted the deer. He ran after the deer leaving the rabbit alone. The rabbit who sensed the opportunity ran for his life. The deer outran the lion in a few minutes and the lion went back towards the tree to eat the rabbit. When he came back, he saw that the rabbit had disappeared and he was left hungry.

Moral : A bird in hand is worth two in a bush.
