This is "The Fox who Lost his Tail", right?

A fox loses his tail in a trap, so he tries to get the foxes in his tribe to cut theirs off too, saying it would make them go faster. Then the elder comes along and says if the fox had any chance of regrowing his tail he wouldn't be convincing everyone else to lose theirs. The two foxes in the last image are probably laughing at what an idiot the other fox is.

The drawings are wonderful as always.
