The Hunter And The Pigeons


In a green, beautiful forest, where the tall trees whispered secrets to the wind, lived a hunter named Jack. He was a sly man, well-known for his crafty ways of trapping birds. But today, he had a particularly cunning plan in mind.

On a one sunny morning, Jack set his trap. He carefully laid out a net under the shade of a majestic oak tree and baited it with shiny grains. Hidden behind a bush, he waited patiently for the pigeons to arrive.

As the morning sun climbed higher, a flock of pigeons descended from the sky, their soft noises filling the air. They saw the grains and couldn’t resist. They landed and started pecking, unaware of the danger beneath them.

Suddenly, the net arose, capturing the birds in its tangled web. The fear raced over the crowd. The forest was filled with confused coos as feathers fluttered and wings flew madly. They were caught!

Throughout the situation, a wise old pigeon named Olivia remained calm. Her feathers had grayed with age, but her eyes shone with wisdom. She gathered the pigeons around her and spoke with a soothing voice.

“Dear friends,” Olivia began, “I understand that fear has gripped our hearts, but if we let panic guide us, we’ll remain trapped. Instead, let us remember the strength we possess when we work together.”

The pigeons, their eyes filled with hope, listened intently as Olivia unveiled her plan. Each pigeon would take hold of a piece of the net in their beaks. Together, they would rise into the sky, lifting the net and the cunning hunter with it.

With a sense of unity, the pigeons nodded in agreement. They held onto the net tightly, and with a collective effort, they flapped their wings with all their might.

Jack, who had been lurking nearby, was caught completely off guard. He found himself lifted off the ground, entangled in his own net. Fear washed over him as he dangled helplessly in the air.

“Please, let me down!” Jack pleaded. “I promise I’ll never harm any of you or your fellow birds again!”

Olivia, as the spokesperson for the flock, considered his words. “We pigeons value kindness and compassion above all else. If you promise never to harm us or any other birds, we will release you.”

Jack quickly agreed to the conditions after realizing the pigeons had escaped him. The pigeons carefully lowered the net to the ground, and Jack fell out, his clothes messy and his face empty of color.

As he walked away from the forest, Jack couldn’t help but marvel at the strength and wisdom of the pigeons. He had been taught a powerful lesson by these creatures he had underestimated.

The pigeons, too, learned an important lesson that day. They discovered that when they stood together, they were capable of great things. Their unity had not only saved them from the cunning hunter but also taught them the enduring power of compassion and solidarity.

Moral of the Story: Unity is strength. When we work together with kindness and compassion, we can overcome even the most cunning challenges that life may throw our way.
