Once upon a time there was a bear living in a dense forest. He came across a log where a swarm of bees had nested to make their honey. As he snooped around, a single little bee flew out of the log to protect the swarm. Knowing that the bear would eat all the honey, the little bee stung him sharply on the nose and then disappeared into the hollow log.
The bear lost his temper in an instant, and sprang upon the log in his tooth and claws, to destroy the nest. Immediately the whole bees came out of the log and began to sting the bear from head to heel. The bear saved himself by running and diving into a pool of water.
