Illustrated: Pastor et Lupi Catuli


M0841 - M0842 - M0843

842. Pastor et Lupi Catuli. Pastor repertos lupi catulos cura magna educavit, arbitratus, cum adolevissent, non solum oves custodituros suas, sed insuper alias rapientes sibi delaturos. At illi citissime adulti, occasionem nacti, primum ipsius gregem devoravere. Quapropter ingemens, pastor ait, “Merito equidem plector. Quid enim eos iuvenculos adhuc servavi, quos vel adultos necare oportebat?”

Lupus Familiaris et Pastor (2)

Click here for a SLIDESHOW of all the Harrison Weir images. Although this was not an illustration intended for this particular fable, I think it fits it very well!

M0842 = Perry209. Source: De Furia 319. This is Perry 209. For another fable about raising a wolf cub, see #77.
