Binding of Fenrir Myth (4)

Binding of Fenrir Myth
This myth relates the story of how the gods managed to trick the wolf Fenrir into letting them bind him with a magic fetter. They fail with fetter called Leyding and the one called Dromi but succeed with the one called Gleipnir. Unfortunately, the god Týr had put his hand in Fenrir´s mouth as a guarantee that the gods were not trying to trick Fenrir into being bound. Fenrir bites off Týr´s hand when he realized that he cannot break the fetter.
