Goatherds once occupied an ascetic's hut, and, on their departure, left behind a she-goat who had strayed away. As she ran to join the others, she saw a panther in the way; she showed great daring and tried to pacify him with soft words, but all in vain, for he devoured her.

The story was related in reference to a she-goat whom Moggallāna once saw near his mountain hut. When she, however, saw a panther, she, with great daring, jumped over his body and escaped. J.iii.479f.
