Aesop's Fables with lessons and morals

A Bootes that grazed a herd of oxen lost a calf. He sought it, touring the surroundings without finding it. Zeus then promised sacrifice a kid if I discovered who had stolen it.
He immediately joined the forest and saw a lion eating the calf. Terrified raised hands to the sky shouting:
-Oh great Jove, earlier I promised sacrifice you a kid if he found the thief; but now I promise to sacrifice a bull if I can avoid falling into the clutches of the thief!

When hunting for a solution, keep in mind that to find it, this in turn can become the next problem.
