Sometimes it is hard to comprehend why certain individuals choose to spread gossip about others. In this rendition of Aesop´s timeless fable, the reason is crystal-clear: The lion is hungry and would do anything to have a delicious bull for dinner. Using malicious gossip, the sly fox helps the lion by separating the bulls for capture on the promise that he will receive his own tasty portion of the meal. Will the lion eat the bulls?
