Two men come before the king because one of their beloved pets has been claimed by the other. Both of these men claim that the same cow is theirs. The king declares that one of the men will get the cow and he will give the other man one of his cattle, just to be fair. He will decide which man gets which at random. One of the men thanks the king for his generosity but the other man does not accept the offer. One man leaves with the disputed cow. Which man gets the cow?
The one who protests the king's offer must be the owner of the cow, because if it is his beloved pet he wouldn't let chance decide if he gets his cow or not.
