A while later a hunter came by with his trap.   The ant knew what he was up to.  “How can I let this hunter catch the dove that saved my life?” he thought.  “I must do something!   He hurried across the path, climbed the man’s leg and then gave him a very sharp bite.   The hunter yelled and dropped his trap.  The dove flew off.  “Thank you, dear ant, for saving my life,” said the dove.  “I’ll never forget your kindness!”
