A man bought a sheep and went home with it. A hare saw him and thought, "What a good sheep that is! I must have it for myself."
—How Did the Hare Get the Sheep?
(An African folktale)
Note: It has been my policy in listing reports of hybrids to include all serious allegations, especially those of scholars, whether or not the hybrid alleged seems possible or likely to me. This policy, I think, helps to eliminate subjective judgment on my part, and therefore should remove at least one source of systematic bias from my work. It also helps to fulfill the ethical obligation of telling not just the truth, but the whole truth.
