The Manciple's Tale
lines 183-186: An example about a female wolf


       A she wolf hath also a vileyns kynde,
The lewedeste wolf that she may fynde,
185Or leest of reputacioun wol she take,
In tyme whan hir lust to han a make.
       A she-wolf also has a vulgar mind;
The wretchedest he-wolf that she may find,
185Or least of reputation, she'll not hate
Whenever she's desirous of a mate.
