The story is told in the Panchatantra. A certain tiger grew too old to hunt
and was dying of hunger, when he thought of a device for securing a meal,
and wove a bracelet of yellow grass round his paw. A Brahman who
came that way saw the bracelet and believing it to be gold, coveted it.
The tiger, who professed intense penitence for all his former sins, declared that he would give the bracelet to the Brahman, if he would take it.
The Brahman led by his avarice approached to take the gift, and was
killed and eaten by the tiger.
