War With Birds

 
Long ago, on the grasslands of Africa, a lion, king of the beasts, was about to eat his prey when an eagle, king of the birds, flew down and snatched it away.
"Growl. How dare he! I am declaring war against all birds. I will catch and kill them all," roared the lion. He called together his animal followers.
"Listen carefully everyone! Hereafter, we are at war with the birds. We won't leave a single bird alive," he said.
"We understand, our King!" shouted the animals.
They were also angry with the birds because they had their food snatched away too. When night fell and the birds had returned to their nest, the animals began their attack. Since the birds could not see in the dark, they were badly beaten and fled.
