Medieval Moment: Beastiaries were a medieval style of writing where talking animals would discuss the matters of the day and usually deliver a moral or two while they were at it. There are surviving examples that cover a range of topics, from the virtues of taking laxatives to how not to be an awful neighbour. While commonly used for allegorical teachings, there doesn’t seem to have been a limit on what animals could and couldn’t discuss in regards to human nature.https://www.bl.uk/medieval-english-french-manuscripts/articles/beastly-tales-from-the-medieval-bestiary
There is also marginalia (i.e. drawings in the margins) of rabbits murdering people. So, you know, not always Lawful Good, you know?
