Greed Leads To Suffering - Short Moral Stories in English

A hunter spotted a big, fat donkey in a forest. He shot an arrow at it, injuring it severely. But, the donkey injured the hunter before dying. 

A greedy fox, who had been hiding behind a bush, saw all this. It thought, "Indeed, this is my lucky day! Today, I will feed on a donkey and a man!" The fox went to the donkey first.
