A little farther on the lion asked again: “Who burned this place, here?” “I’m the one who burned all of that” the hyena replied. The lion continued his walk with the hyena.
A little farther on, the lion asked his question again: “Who burned this place here?” “Didn’t I already tell you that I am the one who burned the whole area?” said the hyena with some annoyance. They kept walking. When they came to a small tree called a bagênd, the lion asked her once more: “Who burned this area?” “I already told you that I am the one who burned all that you see” said the hyena.
The lion walked around the small tree behind which were his dead cubs. He asked the hyena: “Who burned this area?” “No it wasn’t me. The fires got mixed up. I’m not the one who set the fire here” said the hyena. The lion seized her and cut off her paws. Even today, when the lion finds the hyena he cuts off her paws; he doesn’t kill her.
