Be careful about two things. Buy no gallows'-flesh, and do not sit at the edge of any well. The youth thought, "That is a wonderful beast, he has strange whims; who is going to buy gallows'-flesh? He rode on with the beautiful maiden, and his road took him again through the village in which his two brothers had remained.

There was a great stir and noise, and, when he asked what was going on, he was told that two men were going to be hanged. As he came nearer to the place he saw that they were his brothers, who had been playing all kinds of wicked pranks, and had squandered all their wealth.
He inquired whether they could not be set free. They came to the wood where the Fox had first met them, as it was cool and pleasant within it, the two brothers said, "Let us rest a little by the well, and eat and drink. But the two brothers threw him backwards into the well, took the maiden, the Horse, and the Bird, and went home  to their father. But the youngest brother was not dead. By good fortune the well was dry, and he fell upon soft moss without being hurt, but he could not get out again. Even in this strait the faithful Fox did not leave him: No one knew him, but the Bird began to sing, the Horse began to eat, and the beautiful maiden left off weeping.

The King, astonished, asked, "What does this mean? I feel as if my true bridegroom had come. The King commanded that all people who were in his castle should be brought before him; and amongst them came the youth in his ragged clothes; but the maiden knew him at once and fell upon his neck. The wicked brothers were seized and put to death, but he was married to the beautiful maiden and declared heir to the King.
But how did it fare with the poor Fox? Long afterwards the King's son was once again walking in the wood, when the Fox met him and said, "You have everything now that you can wish for, but there is never an end to my misery, and yet it is in your power to free me," and again he asked him with tears to shoot him dead and chop off his head and feet.
So he did it, and scarcely  was it done when the Fox was changed into a man, and was no other than the brother of the beautiful princess, who at last was freed from the magic charm which had been laid upon him. And now nothing more was wanting to their happiness as long as they lived.
