The Hunter and the Pigeons

WWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW The Hunter and the Pigeons After a day spent tromping around without a catch, a hunter at last found a flock of pigeons. “Pigeons! What luck!” thought the hunter. “Pigeons’ wings are so weak that I can take as many as I want without fear that they will fly away from me.” The hunter took out a heavy net and threw it over the birds. All at once, the pigeons flapped their wings. As they did so, they rose into the air, taking the net with them. When they got to the top of a nearby tree, the net snagged on a branch and ripped. The hole in the net was big enough to allow the birds to escape. And they did! The pigeons were without defenses on their own. However, together they were able to lift the net and fly away to freedom. WWWWWWWWWWWWWWW © Advanced Assessment Systems/LinkIt!™ Passage provided under license from PassageBank.com.
