Description

"An old man captured a mischievous badger and hung it to a rafter by the feet. While the old man was away, the badger tricked his wife into undoing the cord, and then killed her. Later, as the old man lamented his wife's death, a hare came forward and offered to avenge the murder. The hare lured the badger out of his hole with parched beans, had it shoulder a bundle of dried - grass, and then set fire to the bundle. When the badger retired to its hole to nurse the burns, the hare applied a sticking plaster that he said would heal them but that actually contained red pepper. Afterward, inviting the badger to go fishing, the hare boarded a boat of wood, but tricked the badger into boarding one of clay. The clay boat gradually dissolved in the water, and the badger was drowned." (Kyoto University of Foreign Studies, https://www.kufs.ac.jp/toshokan/chirimenbon/b_05.html)
