Sheep, Wolf, and Shepherd

There was a young sheep who loved her herd.  She was born and grew up in this small, tight-knit community.

One day, she was out for a walk by herself when she found an injured wolf, alone and crying.  She stayed and watched over the wolf and gave him some food.  However, a few of the sheep came by and reprimanded her: 
"Wolves are ravenous beasts!" 
She refused to give up on the wolf, and decided to take care of him and find his family.  Her family of sheep abandoned her.

A wandering shepherd found her and the wolf a few days after the incident.  The shepherd quickly attended to the wolf.  He then told the sheep, “Thank you for taking care of this wolf.  He’s an old friend.” 

He picked up the wolf, put him across his shoulders and said,
"Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep."
