128. The Goat in the Lion's Den.

129. Donkey, Cat and the Lion's Head.

The familiar episode of the Wolf's head which occurs early in the Reynard cycle (see Percy Society Publications 12, Introduction, pages xxxiii-xxxiv) is, in African stories, often combined with that of the Goat in the Lion's den (or the Hyena's). Compare Rattray, Chinyanje, 149-152; Tremearne, 227-229; Fl, 22: 63-65
