Because he was cared well, the little lion grew bigger and became a strong lion.

However, there was a weird thing with the little lion. Because he socialized with goats, he assumed himself as a goat. He did not roar like a lion, but he bleated like the other little goat.

Si Anak Singa dan Seekor Kambing

Suatu hari di sebuah padang rumput, terdapat seekor induk singa yang meninggal setelah melahirkan. Anak singa yang baru lahir tentulah masih sangat lemah. Tidak ada yang membelainya apalagi menyusuinya. Ia mencoba menggerakkan badannya semampu dia.

Tak lama kemudian datanglah sekelompok kambing yang sedang mencari makan. Mereka lewat begitu saja disamping jasad induk singa dan anaknya yang baru lahir tersebut. Namun melihat bayi singa yang bergerak-gerak, timbulah rasa iba dari seekor induk kambing. Di dekatinya anak singa tersebut lalu dijilatinya dengan kasih sayang.

Si bayi singa merasa nyaman dibelai dan dijilati oleh induk kambing. Ia pun bangkit lalu mengikuti induk kambing kemanapun ia pergi. Mulai saat itu, anak singa yang baru lahir itu menjadi bagian dari kelompok kambing. Ia menyusu kepada induk kambing, bahkan ikut bermain pula bersama anak-anak kambing lainnya. Karena dirawat dengan baik, makin lama anak singa tumbuh makin besar dan menjadi anak singa yang kuat.

Namun ada yang aneh dengan anak singa satu ini. Karena ia sering berbaur dengan kawanan kambing, ia menganggap dirinya adalah anak kambing. Ia juga tidak mengaum seperti layaknya seekor singa tapi mengembik seperti anak-anak kambing yang lain.

Suatu hari, saat kawanan kambing sedang makan rumput di padang rumput, mereka dikejutkan dengan kedatangan seekor serigala yang lapar. Serigala itu mengincar anak kambing yang ada di tengah kawanan. Semua kambing ketakutan. Mereka beringsut mundur menjauhi serigala. Melihat serigala semakin mendekat, induk kambing berkata kepada anak singa.

“Kau hadapi dia. Kau adalah anak singa. Ayo lawan dia”. Namun si anak singa hanya merunduk ketakutan. Ia tak memiliki nyali untuk melawan serigala. Ia justru semakin mundur menjauhi serigala tanpa mendengarkan induk kambing. Induk kambing terus meminta kepada anak singa untuk melawan serigala. Akhirnya, karena tidak ada perlawanan, serigala menerkam seekor anak kambing. Melihat saudara kambingnya diterkam, si anak singa pun tidak bisa berbuat apa-apa.

Induk kambing sangat sedih melihat anaknya dimangsa serigala. Ia juga marah kepada anak singa karena hanya diam melihat saudara kambingnya dimakan serigala.

“Kenapa kau hanya diam saja melihat saudaramu mati. Seharusnya kau melawan serigala itu. Kau adalah singa”

Melihat induk kambing marah, si anak singa ketakutan. Ia hanya merunduk tanpa mengatakan sepatah katapun. Ia juga bingung apa yang dimaksud induk kambing.

Di lain hari, saat kawanan kambing sedang makan rumput di tempat biasa, serigala pemangsa kambing datang lagi. Tanpa banyak kata serigala itu menerkam induk kambing. Induk kambing berusaha melawan tapi tetap saja kalah kuat dengan serigala.

Melihat induk kambing berjuang mati-matian, anak singa pun nekat melawan serigala. Ia berlari mendekati singa yang sedang menggigit induk kambing. Melihat ada seekor anak singa di hadapannya, serigala ketakutan. Anak singa dengan sekuat tenaga mengeluarkan suaranya, namun yang keluar adalah suara yang mirip dengan suara kambing bukan singa.

Serigala pun tahu, bahwa anak singa itu bermental kambing. Maka ketakutannya hilang begitu saja. Ia lawan anak singa hingga anak singa itu babak belur. Tiba-tiba, serigala mendengar auman singa dewasa. Serigala lari tunggang langgang, termasuk anak singa dan para kambing. Melihat ada anak singa yang lari di antara kawanan kambing, singa dewasa tersebut mengejar anak singa itu.

Setelah berhasil mendapatkan anak singa tersebut, singa dewasa kebingungan, karena anak singa tampak ketakutan sambil berkata dengan suara bergetar.

“Jangan, tolong jangan bunuh”

“Hei, aku tidak akan membunuhmu. Kau adalah anak singa. Aku tidak akan membunuh anak singa”

“Bukan, aku anak kambing. Bukan anak singa”

Singa dewasa mulai merasa kesal. Ia seret si anak singa ke tepi danau. Ia menyuruh si anak singa untuk melihat ke air danau. Barulah anak singa tersadar bahwa wujudnya adalah seekor singa bukanlah kambing. Lalu ia pun diajari bagaimana cara mengaum dan berburu layaknya singa pada umumnya.
