Polaris AB: The Fable Collection of Short Stories
A hungry Bear found his way into an apiary when the Bee-keeper was away, opened up all the hives and ate all the honey destroying the hives in the process.
When the Bee-Keeper returned and found the hives empty, he was very much upset and stood over the hives wondering what he was going to do. Before long the remaining bees returned from gathering honey, and, finding their hives overturned and the Keeper standing by, they made straight for him as a target for their stings.
He fell to the ground, desperately covering himself from the attack and cried out –
“Why would you attack me and not the one who did this, after all I have done to take care of you"?
The Bees replied - “You were here when we returned after working hard gathering our honey only to find our homes destroyed and our honey gone. We are angry bees and we need someone to blame”.
And the Moral of the story is:
Before you focus your anger onto another, make sure you know the facts firstly.
