Once there was a powerful family of buffalo who became tired of where they were living, so they moved up the country to a place where there was thick forest and river and villages with abundant crops. They lived there very happy because there was no scarcity of food and life was very pleasant. But there were dangers in the bush. Then the buffalo strayed in and trouble began, They trampled on the crops, they wallowed in the mud on the river bank. They made so much damage that the animals held a meeting. The tortoise suggested that they should talk to the buffalo chief, so they went in search of the old boss. They found him asleep. They shouted, “Buffalo” and the old fellow woke up. They narrated their woes. The buffalo lashed his tail angrily and said ,”We are the lords of the bush, and we cannot be bothered with all this nonsense At this time, the lion became very angry -he roared ,”You big stupid bully, come on and fight “Since the lion hadn’t fought for a long time, so the middle-aged lion was badly mauled his back was broken and he died on the spot . The buffalo shook himself and glared around. Then the tortoise said, “We will have to rely on brains, not brawn” Would you do us a great favour, Queen Bee, and give us a hive so that we may catch the buffalo who is causing us so much trouble. The pigs dug an enormous hole and the monkeys covered the hole with leaves and branches that was a trap. The monkey sat on the river bank, wept loudly and rubbed himself with mud .” what on earth is the matter with you?”The monkey said, about the honey. The buffalo came, then there was a terrific crash, and the buffalo landed in the pit .”We have not finished the job as yet said the tortoise. Now you run to the village, and you lead them here. The dogs, their hair rising with excitement, stood on the edge of the pit and barked madly. They killed the buffalo and dragged the body away and made a great fire and made a magnificent feast. The tortoise and the hare and the monkey congratulated each other.
