A different look at Aesop's "The Eagle and the Jackdaw".

The Eagle and the Jackdaw

Once upon a time in farm, a jackdaw saw an eagle seized a full grown sheep with its long talons. It seemed so easy.

“Holy shit!” were the words that came out of his mouth as he watched the eagle fly far and high. The jackdaw thought for a while and decided to try it himself.

“I bet I can do it too!” he exclaimed with excitement.

So he got ready. He spread his wings and swooped down but before he even got near the sheep, his head was blown into bits of pieces.

“I warned you sons of bitches! You can’t just keep on stealing my sheep!” cussed the angry farmer as he tucked his shotgun.

Moral of the story: Good timing is the key.

Well, timing does matter so does the protection at that particular point. Sheep are always wanted by many for their fleece, milk, flesh, horns and what not, they need to be protected at all times for their worth....
