"Dressed in the skin, the Wolf strolled into the pasture with the Sheep. Soon a little Lamb was following him about and was quickly led away to slaughter." - The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing - Aesop

"The Good Shepherd" was inspired by the short children's fable "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," which is as follows:

A certain Wolf could not get enough to eat because of the watchfulness of the Shepherds. But one night he found a sheep skin that had been cast aside and forgotten. The next day, dressed in the skin, the Wolf strolled into the pasture with the Sheep. Soon a little Lamb was following him about and was quickly led away to slaughter.

That evening the Wolf entered the fold with the flock. But it happened that the Shepherd took a fancy for mutton broth that very evening and, picking up a knife, went to the fold. There the first he laid hands on and killed was the Wolf.

The Moral of the story being: The evildoer often comes to harm through his own deceit.

Likewise, in both stories a wolf (Blutbad) pretends to be nice and harmless, but is really a monster. And ends up dying due to his own deceit.
