Problem

This is an old and famous Russian puzzle. Try to carry Wolf, Goat and Cabbage across a river in a boat. You can take on the boat with you only one of them in each trip. If you leave Wolf and Goat on the same bank, Wolf will eat Goat. If you leave Goat and Cabbage on the same bank, Goat will eat Cabbage. Although, they will never eat one another while you stay with them. Make sure they all safely reach the other river bank.

You can move a person/animal/object to the boat by clicking on its image. Clicking on an image in the boat moves one back.
To move the boat to another bank, press the '<<' or '>>' buttons.
