The situation amused the ass so much  that he began to bray loudly.It was unbelievable. It was against nature. wonder arrested the master’s flight. He stopped to know the reality. The foolish donkey kept on braying  in the ecstasy of victory till the master recognized him by his unpleasant voice. He immediately came back, put a rope in this neck and tied him to a tree.
