On his way back home, he saw a strong, wild boar sharpening his tusks with the help of the bark of a tree. “Whoa! I wonder why this boar is sharpening his tusks when there are no hunters around!” This fox was a bit nosy and was absolutely anxious to know why the wild boar was sharpening his tusks.

The fox thought for a while but could not get to a conclusion. He decided to go to the wild boar and ask the reason behind it. He made his way towards the wild boar who did not notice him. The fox said, “Good evening, Mr. Boar! I want to ask you something.” To this the boar said, “Yes, Mr. Fox! Please continue!”

The fox being given his chance jumped at the opportunity. He asked, “Mr. Boar, why are you sharpening your tusks now when there are no hunters around?” “Mr. Fox, we live in a forest which has danger at every step. Then what is the use of digging a well when the fire is already broken out. Who knows when I have to face my enemies! If I don’t sharpen my tusks now, I may not get the time to sharpen it later when I need it the most,” replied the boar.

Hearing this, the fox got embarrassed. As a result, he ran out from there and had learned a lesson from the boar. You may also like to read, The Lion And The Boar.
