Clever Coyote Once upon a time, a long ago, a monster stole all the buffalo from the plains and put them in his mountain hideout. “All for me !” roared the monster. Coyote, a wild dog, called all the people and all the animals together in a great meeting to figure out what they could do.

Clever Coyote "That is understood," Coyote nodded. "But I was thinking … a small boy must be very lonely with no one to love except a horrible monster. I think we should give him a pet to love. When the chance arises, the pet we send can set the buffalo free." All the people and all the animals thought that was a marvelous idea.
