The Wolf, The Man and The Bear

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.
