Kharādiya Jātaka (No.15)

The Bodhisatta was once born as a leader of deer. His sister Kharādiyā brought him her son that he might teach him the wisdom of the deer, but the young deer was disobedient and did not attend his lessons. As a result, he was caught in a gin-trap and killed by huntsmen.

The story was told in reference to an unruly monk. Kharādiyā is identified with Uppalavaṇṇā. J.i.159 f.
