In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

39 15 The Hare and the Lion O ne day, the hare set fire to the bush. Unfortunately, the fire reached the lion’s children. The lion promised to give a buffalo to the one who had set fire to the bush. The hare went to inform the hyena about this. ‘‘My dear hyena, the lion wants to see the one who burned the bush today, so that he can offer him a buffalo!’’ The hyena went to find the lion: ‘‘My dear lion, it appears you are looking for the one who set the bush on fire?’’ The lion said yes.

They kept walking. When they came to a small tree called a bagênd1 , the lion asked her once more: ‘‘Who burned this area?’’ ‘‘I already told you that I am the one who burned all that you see,’’ said the hyena.
