Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Sigālaka Sutta:1.Sigālaka Sutta. An old jackal,afflicted by mange,finds no pleasure in lonely places,or in the woods,or in the open air.Wherever he goes he falls into misfortune and disaster.Even so is a monk whose heart is possessed by gains,favours,or flattery.S.ii.230.

2.Sigālaka Sutta.Some old jackals,afflicted with mange,can go wherever they like.There are some Sākyan monks who cannot get even so much release.S.ii.127; the Commentary (SA.ii.169) says that the sutta was preached in reference to Devadatta.

3.Sigālaka Sutta.-Some Sākyan monks have not as much gratitude as a jackal (S.ii.272).The Commentary adds (SA.ii.170) that the sutta was preached in reference to Devadatta,and the story was about a jackal who was released by a peasant from a snake who had coiled round it.The snake attacked the peasant,and the jackal brought the peasant his axe in its mouth,enabling the man to kill the snake.
