When the wolf grew up, he joined the dogs in chasing any wolf who dared steal a sheep from the flock.
Sometimes, however, the dogs weren't strong enough to keep up the pace. Leaving the dogs behind, the two wolves would feast together on the stolen sheep.
The shepherd's wolf got so used to eating sheep that he would occasionally steal a sheep from the flock, and even share the sheep with the dogs.
The shepherd finally realized what was happening and hanged the wolf from a tree.
