Moral of Presumption By Tyler Sivulich Based Sihacamma Jataka
There once was a farmer merchant who would go away looking for goods, and would leave his donkey behind.
When the merchant went to a town he covered the donkey in a lions skin to disguise him.
The watchman had seen what he thought was a lion from the distance and would not go near it. Instead he retreated to the village to warn them of the lion.
The villagers scare it, and the donkey yells to revile that it isn't a lion. The villagers beat it to death.
The merchant says if the he never lied about the identity of the donkey, he would be alive eating barley today.
