Who Should Be King

 
One day, the king of the beasts, the lion, was shot by a hunter. The animals of the grassland were in a state of confusion. They had to choose a king who would defend their kingdom for them.
"Mr. Cheetah is the best qualified since he is the fastest runner," said some. "You shouldn't say that. Just seeing a man makes me run away," said the cheetah, declining.
"Well then, how about you, Mr. Rhino? You are the strongest, aren't you?" asked another. "Oh, no! My eyesight is so weak that I quickly bump into trees," said the rhino, also declining.
"Then Mr. Elephant, what do you say to being king? You are the largest," they asked.
