The Birds and the Arrow

A hunter traveled many miles to a gathering where hundreds of birds held an annual meeting.  The hunter requested that the birds give him one bird so he could make arrows.  After much deliberation the birds agreed to give the hunter a wild turkey.  The hunter killed the turkey and used its feathers to make the fletching for his arrows.  As soon as his quiver was full, the hunter began shooting and killing all of the fine birds in the field.  The great Eagle flying above the the hunter's arrows remarked to another escaping bird.  "Our first mistake was the most tragic for us all.  We should have never given up the rights of our brother Turkey. Because of our foolishness, we all perish." Moral: sacrificing the rights of others, may endanger your own.
