A man who went out to hunt lions in a forest met a woodcutter, and he asked him whether he had seen any lion’s tracks and whether he knew where the lion’s den was.
“Yes” said the man, “and if you’ll come with me. I’ll show you the lion himself.”
Upon hearing this, the hunter turned frightening pale. “No, thank you,” he said. “It was the lion’s tracks that I was hunting, not the lion himself.”
