A wolf encountered a man.
He asked, “Why do you want to kill me?
The man replied, “Because I can.”
The wolf went on.
He met another man.
He asked, “Why do you shoot my deer?
The man replied, “I want them on my wall. And I can.”
The wolf met a bear.
He asked, “Why do you kill my deer?”
“Because I am hungry,” the bear replied.
“I kill the weak and the old. The others thrive.”
“My brother,” said the wolf, and went on.
