A Lion demanded the daughter of a Wood Cutter in marriage. The father, unwilling to grant the request but afraid to refuse, decided on a plan. He expressed his willingness to accept the Lion as the suitor of his daughter if the beast would allow the man to extract his teeth and cut off his claws, as the daughter was afraid of both. The Lion cheerfully assented to the proposal and, returning with teeth and claws gone, he called upon the father to accept him as a son-in-law. The Wood Cutter, no longer afraid, set upon the Lion with a club and drove him away into the forest.
Love can tame the wildest.
