Metaphor for humans

I feel that the greedy tortoise in the story "Party time in the sky" is a metaphor for humans. The tortoise first interfered with the laws of nature and then audaciously tricked the kind birds. This is exactly what humans have been doing to their fellow beings. Humans must realise that animals are not theirs to eat, wear, experiment on or use for entertainment. Girish Ananth,
