De pugnam Alcium, seu Onagrorum contra lupos.

CAP.III.

                                        SED nec sufficit commodo, atque vtili animali, homines
                                        sustinere venatores telis asperis, sagittisque latis, millenis
                                        insidiis sese in vasta solitudine impetentes: immo & bestiolas
Bestiolæ contemptibiles.                                         contemptibiles, mustelas scilicet præmissas, respectu
                                        tam proceræ altitudinis suæ: nisi & ferocissimos lupos,
Lupi montani contra alces pugnantes.                                         montanos præsertim, sufferat insidiatores: eo videlicet
                                        modo, vt cum asperrimæ hyemes sint, densæque nives,
                                        ipsi lupi fame pressi, heremi latebras vasto agmine circumeuntes,
                                        expostulent prædam: lacubusque congelatis onagros
inesse speculantur: in quos irruentes, & vngulis, & cornibus vel interimuntur,
Canis vno ictu excerebratur. vel effugantur. Tanta enim vis est in ictu vngulæ, vt illico tactum lupum interimat,
aut sodiat: quod sæpius in canibus robustissimis venatores experiuntur: immo
elabente cane, opposita arbor illiditur, quasi fungus adesset. Onagri naturæ instinctu,
Arbor ictu pedis penetratur. vt proximo superiore cap. monstratum est, norunt apta certamini loca, scilicet
in lubrica glacie, in qua mucronatis vngulis sunt solidiores, vbt lupi quasi in vaginis
vngulas retinent viribus vacuatas: atque ita in conflictu manentes, non procul
Venatores in sequuntur partem victam. absunt venatores, qui fatigatam partem prælio excedentem, ad interitum vsque subsequi
solent, alieno periculo prædas opulentiores conquisituri. Fit enim atrox certamen,
vt pauci onagrorum, & multi luporum lacerati linquantur: quos ob pellium
valorem venatores acceptant, atque interim onagri, seu alces, in tuta recedunt. Lupi
procul dubio super congelatum nivium cacumen, tanquam levius insultantes,
Natura provide succurrit. exciperent victoriam, vbi alces gravi pondere nivibus immersæ, lupis
fierent esca. Ita providens natura(vt supradictum est)vnicuique
animanti idoneum campum pro sui defensione
distribuisse videtur.
