Animal Tale... A trickster’s tale
A rabbit is out hunting for food when he sees a coyote coming his way. The rabbit quickly gets under a large rock that is held up by a smaller rock and pretends that he is holding up the sky that is falling. The coyote comes over ready to eat the rabbit when conversation breaks out and the coyote hears that the rabbit wants to go get his family to come and help him keep up the sky. The coyote takes the rabbit’s place and waits and waits and waits for the rabbit to come back.
