Pig Squeals When a Shepherd Lays Hands on It

A pig joined a flock of sheep and grazed with them. One day the shepherd laid hands on it, and it began to squeal and struggle. The sheep found fault with the pig for crying out. “He takes hold of us often,” they said, “and we don’t make a fuss.” “Yes, but it’s a different thing his laying hold of you,” said the pig. “He only wants your wool or your milk, but it’s my flesh he’s after.” (Fables of Aesop).
