One morning he went out hunting as he went every day, he walked calmly towards the hills, and on reaching the hills he saw a very large eagle descending from the sky and perching on his great nest.

How cunning the eagle has! Just dawn and I hunt a snake to feed their little eagles.
The lord of the heavens thought that the serpent was dead and dropped by his little brood, the serpent, when he saw the brave eagle retreat, unscrewed and opened his mouth wide with the intention of eating the little eagle, the pigeon had no escape , Looked at the evil serpent very terrified, luckily all this happened before the eyes of the good hunter, when the snake was about to bite the eagle pigeon, the hunter took his bow, carried an arrow, shot a sure hit in His head, the dangerous snake lost his life at the same instant.
The hunter was not sure that the little eagle had not suffered a bite from the snake, quickly climbed the hill to the eagle's nest to check that the pigeon was well.
When I reached the nest I noticed that the little bird was very well, I take the little pigeon in his hands, I caress it and check it well under the feathers to check that it was healthy and moved away from the nest.

If it's okay you're right, I'm very sad about it, I'm always aware of the chicks, as the snake did not move I thought I was dead.
Yes good but, I do not know, I'm not sure
Look I apologize and I promise that it will not happen again, please return my pigeon and I will give you back. Said the bird.
As you do? I ask the hunter in disbelief.
