A wolf had stolen a lamb and was carrying it off to his lair to eat it. But his plans were very much changed when he met a lion, who, without making any excuses, took the lamb away from him.

The wolf made off to a safe distance, and then said in a much injured tone:

“You have no right to take my property like that!”

The lion looked back, but as the wolf was too far away to be taught a lesson without too much inconvenience, he said:

“Your property? Did you buy it, or did the shepherd make you a gift of it? Pray tell me, how did you get it?”

What is evil won is evil lost.
