Once time the oxen determined to be revenged on the butchers for the havoc they wrought in their ranks, and plotted to put them to death on a given day. They were all gathered together discussing how best to carry out the plan, and the more violent of them were engaged in sharpening their horns for the fray

An old ox got up on his feet and said, “My brothers, I know you have good reason to hate these butchers. But, at any rate, they understand their trade and do what they have to do without causing unnecessary pain. And if we kill them, others, who have no experience, will be set to slaughter us, and will inflict great sufferings on us by their bungling. For you may be sure that, even though all the butchers perish, mankind will never go without their beef.”

Do not rush to change evils.
