Image: Canis Homicida et Dominus Eius


M0371 - M0372 - M0373
372. Canis Homicida et Dominus Eius. Vir quidam dives, venandi studio mirifice deditus, complures canes alebat, quorum unus filium domini morsu interfecit. Dominus, ira percitus, non solum homicidam, verum etiam omnes alios iussit occidi. Tunc ait unus ex eis, “Unus peccavit, et cuncti plectimur.”



M0372 (not in Perry). Source: Abstemius 162. This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; Perry omitted most of Abstemius’s fables. For a story about a dog wrongly accused and punished, see #373.
