Frustrated, he came out. When the dogs saw him again, they were unable to recognize him anymore. Fearing that it was an unknown animal, they became terrified and ran off in all directions.

The disappointed jackal went back to the jungle, but the blue dye would not come off.

Why are you running away? Don’t be afraid. Brahma, the Lord of all creations, has me made me himself, with his own hands. Brahma said to me, ‘The animals in the jungle do not have a proper king. Go to the jungle and protect the animals.'”
