The wolf and the fox think the reflection of the moon in the water is a cheese. The fox lowers the wold into the water, the wolf fall into the water and the cheese disappears.
Crossing the stream with the meat in his mouth he sees his reflection; thinking it another dog with meat he dives for it and loses his meat.
Fox puts stopper in him to keep water from escaping but takes it out when they come to a tavern.
