In a lean springtime, the wolf came to the meadows to see if he could steal sheep, but the shepherd boy startled him with his shout, and as the wolf bolted back into the bush he saw the villagers arrive, look about, then scold the boy for his false summons. Hungry, the next day brought the wolf back, and the same thing happened, except the scolding he overheard was a little louder. The third day, even more hungry, the wolf did not bolt when the boy shouted. And the villagers didn’t arrive.

And for all that hungry season which remained, every third day, the wolf dined on another sheep.
