Short Story - The Fox without Tail
A fox lost her tail in a trap and was ashamed of her loss. It seemed extremely unfair to her that she alone should lack a tail.
She seriously thought that the world would be a much improved place if all the other foxes were to be without tails.
And so she tried to convince them all to cut off their tails.
‘The tail,’ she said, ‘is just an extra weight. And you could hardly call it elegant or pretty!’
‘If that is so,’ replied her friends, ‘then why are you so unhappy without one?’
