At harvest time, Hare went and stole his friend’s ripe maize. He carried it to his own granary.

Hyena complained about the stolen crops. Hare answered, “Maybe the neighbours stole your maize. They are suffering from famine because they are lazy.”

Hyena thought about this problem for a long time. He came up with an idea. He collected gum from the trees. He put that sticky gum around the whole field. The thief would get stuck in the gum.
