But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and thrown aside, so it put it on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep.

The Lamb that belonged to the sheep, whose skin the Wolf was wearing, began to follow the Wolf in the Sheep’s clothing… so, leading the Lamb a little apart, he soon made a meal off her and for some time he succeeded in deceiving the sheep and enjoying hearty meals.
