The Boy Who Cried Wolf

There was a shepherd boy who lived in a small village. He used to take his sheep herd to the hills for grazing. He used to get bored watching the sheep.

One day when he was bored he cried out “Wolf! Wolf!”, just to amuse himself. Hearing his cry the villagers came running up the hill. To their surprise there was no wolf around. Seeing the villagers the boy just laughed and made fun.

The shepherd boy kept repeating this many days. The villagers kept asking him not to do so. One day a wolf really came and the boy cried “Wolf! Wolf!”. This time no one came to his rescue as the villagers thought that he was again trying to make a fool of them. The boy alone could not fight the wolf, and the wolf had a feast on sheep.

When the shepherd boy did not return at sunset villagers went in search of him and found him crying. After listening to what happened the villagers said to the boy “This is what happens to people who lie : on telling the truth also no one believes them.”
