Short Story of The Fox Without Tail

Once upon a time there lived a very clever fox in a jungle. One day when Mr. Fox was walking through the jungle he fell into a trap and thus lost his tail. Without his tail Mr, Fox looked very strange and foolish. “What am I going to do?” he cried. Then he had a good idea. “I’m going to ask all the foxes to come to a meeting in the jungle,” he said to himself. “Now listen, my friends,” he said in the meeting. “Why have I asked you to come here? It’s because I’ve made a very good discovery. Do you want to know about it?” “Yes we do,” they all replied.” Dear friends, I have discovered that we don’t need our tails. In fact they are useless. They are ugly and dirty. Look. I’ve cut mine off. Look, here is a knife. I have used it myself. Now you can use it too. You will look nice and clean too.” ‘You didn’t use a knife”, said the Wise Old Fox, You fell into a trap and lost your tail.” Now you want us to lose our tails. Look, my brothers, does Mr. Fox look beautiful”. He looks strange; said one fox. “And foolish too” said another. He felt very sad and ashamed. The fox did not know what to say now. He went away without giving an answer.
