Title:Rat and Dove
Contributor (annotator):JM

Description:This story is about the rat and the dove. The birds and the rat are working in their gardens. All the birds have prepared some food for lunch except for the rat. Most birds have prepared white yam, only the dove has prepared red yam. When the birds realize that the dove's food has disappeared, they falsely accuse another bird of stealing it, while it was in fact the rat who ate it. When the rat laughs in delight about his succesfull coup, the birds see the colour of the red yam on his teeth and therefore know him to be the culprit. They strike him across the face with a broom and since then the rat has whiskers.
