Context

“«No,» exclaimed the Lamb, «I never yet drank water, for as yet my mother's milk is both food and drink to me.» Upon which the Wolf seized him and ate him up, saying, «Well! I won't remain supperless, even though you refute every one of my imputations.» The tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny.
The Bat And The Weasels A BAT who fell upon the ground and was caught by a Weasel pleaded to be spared his life. The Weasel refused, saying that he was by nature the enemy of all birds. The Bat assured him that he was not a bird, but a mouse, and thus was set free.” source
