A hunter was out hunting one day on the forest and killed a deer. Since it was very
late in the day, he couldn’t take the de
er home. He skinned it. He hang it as high as hecould on the branch of a tall pine tree. The following day he returned for his deer, but thedeer was gone. He searched the area for tracks. When he found clues, he went to the justice of peace for help.The justice of peace asked him if he had any idea as to who stole the deer. The
hunter replied that he had seen the thief and he didn’t know who it was, but he could give
an accurate description of the man who stole the deer.The justice of the peace said if he knows something, tell him what kind of man heis. The hunter replied that he is shorter than him, he is older, and he had a yellow bulldog with him. The justice of the peace asked how the hunter knew all that. The hunter repliedthat he knew he is shorter than the hunter because he had to put some logs beneath thetree to reach the deer. The justice of the peace asked how he knew he is old. Then thehunter replied because he took short steps, like an old man.The judge was convinced and granted permission to look for a man fitting that description. After searching for some time, the hunter and the justice of the peace arrivedat a house. They saw a yellow bulldog. They knocked on the door and a small, old manappeared. Then they searched his barn and found the stolen deer. So the hunter, by using his wits, had tracked down the thief who had stolen his deer.
