Almost immediately the hunters arrived, and asked the woodcutter if he had seen the fox.
The woodcutter, with his voice said no, but with his hand he was slyly pointing to the hut where he had hidden.
The hunters did not understand the hand signals and relied solely on what was said with the word.
The fox, seeing them leave, left without saying anything.
The woodcutter reproached him for why despite having saved her, he did not thank him, to which the fox replied:
