When winter was approaching, the sensible Bull urged his friends to build a house so that they could winter in warmth and goodness. But everyone had excuses.
The Bull built a solid hut, and he had not to be afraid of the cold.
Freezing from cold his friends remembered the warm hut of the Bull and went to him. The Bull was reasonable, he did not blame his friends for their carelessness. He realized that wintering together is more fun. So they all warmed up, and lived together, without knowing grief.
Somehow the forest predators Fox, Wolf and Bear met and decided to profit from the Bull's hut.
Only this time, the inhabitants of the hut, taught by bitter experience, acted together and rebuffed the arrogant predators, so much so that they ran away without looking back.
