A lion had been watching three bulls feeding in an open field everyday for a week. He had tried to attack them many times, but they stayed together as a team and helped each other drive him off.

Then one day, the bulls had a fight with each other. When the hungry lion came back to watch them that day, he found them all in separate corners of the field, as far away from one another as they could get....still mad at each other.
