Moral: In avoiding one evil, care must be taken not to fall into another.

A Doe hard pressed by hunters sought refuge in a cave belonging to a Lion.

The Lion concealed himself on seeing her approach, but when she was safe within the cave, sprang upon her and tore her to pieces.

“Woe is me,” exclaimed the Doe, “who have escaped from man, only to throw myself into the mouth of a wild beast?’

Aesop
Aesop (c. 620 – 564 BCE) was a Greek fabulist and storyteller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop's Fables. Although his existence remains unclear and no writings by him survive, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day.
