Brer Rabbit, Brer Tiger, and the Treasure

The little Rabbits rushed to untie their father. "No!" Rabbit said. "Leave me tied up. I've got a plan." He told them what to do, and then he waited for Tiger, who showed up at dawn.
"Okay, Tiger," Rabbit said, "we'll split the treasure."
He then led Tiger to the cave and showed him the thread. Tiger rushed in, thinking he would take all the treasure for himself... and he fell into a pit and died.
The children had spent all night digging that pit!
Then they filled it in, brought the dragon's treasure home, and lived happily ever after.


Inspired by: The Days When the Animals Talked by William J. Faulkner.
Notes: This is a continuation of Rabbit and the Dragon's Treasure. In the original story Rabbit has all the other little animals helping him, but I focused instead just on the rabbits to keep it short.
