Panchatantra story of the Greedy Jackal

The Greedy Jackal

Once upon a time there lived a lazy jackal. Also in the hills there lived a hill man and a wild boar. Once when the hill man went to hunt, he saw the wild boar. He took a sharp aim with his arrow and stuck the boar. But the boar was only injured and it attacked the hill man and he died on the spot. But the boar also collapsed due to the injury and died.

Greedy Jackal

The jackal happened to pass the site of both the dead bodies, and the jackal decided to eat them slowly. But he was excessively greedy and first wanted to eat the bowstring, before the other bodies. As he tried to eat the bowstring which was tightly attached to the bow, it snapped and the end of the string pierced the roof of its mouth and it stuck a big injury to the jackal and the jackal died on the spot.
MORAL:  Too much of greed is harmful.
