This version of the legend comes from William Jones' 1907 collection of Mesquakie stories, Fox Texts.The Little Creatures of Caprice were once travelling over the country when they came upon a hole that gleamed with a sheen of light inside. "Wonder whose hole this might be?" they said. "Come, let us set a trap for the creature!" they said. Thereupon one of the Little Creatures of Caprice untied the cord from his bow, and making a noose he set it hanging over the place of the hole.
