Another Version of the Farmer and the Viper

After the farmer takes home the frozen viper, it thaws and attacks the farmer and his children. The farmer get an axe and kills the viper. Moral: Those who repay good with evil may expect their neighbors pity to wear out.

This is "The Countryman and the Snake" from the book 'The Fables of Aesop' that was printed for the Book-of-the-month club.

The version here is a lot more family freindly than the version in this troupe.
