In the Aesop's Fable, the tortoise overcomes the hare thanks to his wit and ingenuity.

In real life, a tortoise is no match for a larger animal. No matter how hard he tries, Sheldon the tortoise cannot catch Dolly the pitbull. This encounter at the Humane Society of North Texas animal centre in Texas signifies something deep and meaningful about life. We are all Sheldon, eternally chasing that which we cannot quite grasp (take that, Aesop!).

Either that, or it's just another amusing animal video on the internet...
