It was a tale worthy of Aesop himself: the girl in hijab who cried “man with scissors.” The villagers reacted with sympathy and concern. They rushed to her aid, cameras rolling. In the original fable, when a real wolf finally appears, nobody responds to the boy’s cries; the wolf devours his flock. In some versions, the boy himself is eaten. Things turned out rather differently in the girl’s story. When they found out there was no attack, the villagers devoured each other.
