Aesop's Fable: The Bear and the Two Travelers

In a fable by Aesop, two travelers are walking along when a bear jumps up, causing the first traveler to hop into a tree, and the second to lay on the ground, remembering that bears do not attack prey that is already dead. The bear sniffs the "dead" man, and goes away. The first traveler comes back, asking, "What did the Master Bruin do?" The second replies the moral of the story: "Giving me really good advice, Don't trust a friend who abandons you at the first sign of danger."
