Once there was a man out in the mountain looking for rabbits. He raised one but the rabbit did not run far until he lay down. Then the man took him home and fed him. After a few weeks he was as big as a dog. He grew very fond of his master. One day a lion took a baby from his master's house but he did not go far until the rabbit took the baby from him.
