J.343 Kuntani Jaataka | Kuntinii Jaataka In the court of the king of Benares, there was a heron that carried messages. Once, when she was away, the boys of the palace killed her two young ones. In revenge, she persuaded a tiger to eat the boys and told the king what she had done. She then flew away to the Himalayas because, she said, there could be no friendship between the wrong-doer and the wronged. The story was told in reference to the Kosala king who acted in a similar way. 58/661 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.iii.135ff. vengeance
