C029. Baer (p. 54). Mr. Fox Gets into Serious Business

This is Chase029.

Types ATU1737 Parson in the sack to heaven
Motifs K0842 parson in the sack to heaven

See notes to Chase023

Baer notes "That Fox and Rabbit run off in opposite directions at the sound of the Man's pursuing dogs seems to be part of the American experience"

Johnston mentions this story in connection with Hausa tale of Spider tricking Hyena into taking his place (although Baer notes that Johnston provides the wrong Harris reference)
