The Geese and the Cranes

THE GEESE and the Cranes were feeding in the same meadow, when a birdcatcher came to ensnare them in his nets. The Cranes, being light of wing, fled away at his approach; while the Geese, being slower of flight and heavier in their bodies, were captured. The surviving Geese, however, had last laugh. For through habitat destruction, pesticides and the ravaging of nests, that species of Crane died out. The descendents of the Geese, however, waded around in dirty little ponds where youngsters would feed them bits of bread and chase them around.
