High atop a cliff, an Eagle kept a watchful eye, scanning the ground below for its next meal. Nearby, a Beetle was tending to its business, rolling a ball of dung.
Suddenly, the Eagle’s sharp talons snatched up a hare, startling the Beetle. The Beetle spoke up, “Why must you terrify the peaceful creatures of this land?”
The Eagle, with a smirk, replied, “I am the king of the sky. It’s simply nature’s way.”
The Beetle, feeling sympathy for the captured hare and a growing resentment towards the Eagle, decided to seek revenge. The next day, as the Eagle laid her eggs in her nest, the Beetle rolled a small stone from the hill above. The stone crashed into the nest, sending the eggs plummeting to the ground below.
Distraught, the Eagle cried out, “Who has done this?”
“It was I,” the Beetle called out from the shadows. “Now, you see the consequences of causing pain to others.”
The Eagle, humbled, responded, “I understand now. All creatures, no matter how big or small, deserve respect.”
