The Bag Of Salt Story

A lion, a hyena, a tiger, a zebra, an ostrich and a snake met at a waterhole.

It was then that the lion spotted the bag on the ground.

He sniffed and yelled, “It’s salt!” They were very excited.

The zebra said, “Let’s eat.”

So, the ostrich pierced a hole in it, and the salt flowed out.

All the animals took turns trying it.

Very soon they began to fight over who to leave the salt.

A smart jackal passed by. He told them, “Close your eyes and count to one hundred.

Whoever finds it first can keep it,” he said.

When the animals opened their eyes, they found that both the jackal and the bag were gone.
