An eagle and a fox formed an intimate friendship and decided to live near each other, The eagle built her nest on the branches of a tali tree, while the fox crept into the underwood and there produced her young.

Not long after they had agreed upon this plan, the eagle, being in want of provision for her young ones, swooped down while the fox was out, seized upon one of the little cubs, and feasted herself and her brood.

The fox on her return, discovered what had happened, but was less grieved for the death of her young than for her inability to avenge the eagle. A just retribution, however, quickly fell upon the eagle. While hovering near an altar, on which some villagers were sacrificing a goat, she suddenly seized a piece of the flesh, and carried it, along with a burning cinder, to her nest. A strong breeze soon fanned the spark into a flame, and the eaglets, as yet unfledged and helpless t were roasted in their nest and dropped down dead at the bottom of the tree. There, the fox gobbled them up, while the eagle could not save them.
