Indeed, he shot and killed so many that there was lots of meat left after the bear and his family had loaded themselves and packed all they could carry home. However, the poor rabbit could not even taste the blood from the butchering, as the gluttonous bear would throw earth on the blood and dry it up. Poor rabbit would have to go home hungry after his hard day’s work.
       The bear was the father of five children. The youngest bear was very kind to the rabbit.

Instead, he would take the meat outside and would pretend to play ball with it, kicking it towards the rabbit’s house, and when he got close to the door he would give the meat such a great kick that it would fly into the rabbit’s house.
