Description

A classic Grimms Fairy Tale involving a huntsman, a witch, a wench, and a fair maiden. The witch persuades the other two women to filtch the huntsmans valuables (a magic birds heart he had swallowed, and a magic cloak that allowed him to travel anywhere he wished). In retribution, the huntsman disguises himself as a kings messenger and tricks all three of them into eating a special cabbage that transforms them all into donkeys.

He then gives them away to a miller with instructions that the witch be beaten three times a day and fed only once, one beating and three meals to the wench, and no beatings but three meals for the maiden.

The witch eventually dies in this form, but the huntsman later releases the other two from the curse and even marrys the maiden.
