DescriptionDon Gaspar tells us about a tiger that came out of the mountain and came to kill a cow. He says that there was a man who had land on the edge of the mountain where his cornfield was sown. He says that two friends left at dawn for work; they went before the gentleman did. They said he was very bothersome: “He says many things, what we are is to scare him.” The two friends said, “Let’s do the howl of a tiger.” They hid in the thicket, they saw the gentleman arrive, and they begin to howl as if they were tigers. He says that the gentleman stopped working and he began to look around. He was scared. He went through his mulberry patch and went to his house, but they only did it to bother the gentleman.
