In Asian Highlands Perspectives | PlateauCulture.org [1] there are two
versions of a folktale "Bear and Rabbit", on Khroskyabs (Lavrung) and
one Amdo Tibetan: 



Two mothers, Bear and Rabbit, live together with their children. Bear
kills and eats Rabbit. Rabbit-child kills Bear-child in revenge, flees
with Mother Bear pursuing, is rescued by another kindly animal with whom
he claims kinship. 

Does anybody know of other versions/sources of this tale?
