      Hi Gunnar,

      you probably mean this passage:

      MN 51, Kandaka Sutta:

      "Venerable, sir, the human grip is strong, as for the animals they
      live at ease." (translation is not so clear here)

      better at KEN:

      ""So ist es, Pesso, so ist es, Pesso: heimlich wie die Höhle, Pesso,
      ist ja der Mensch, und offen wie die Ebene, Pesso, ist ja das Tier. "

      or Pali:

      ``Evametaṃ, pessa, evametaṃ, pessa. Gahanañhetaṃ , pessa, yadidaṃ
      manussā; uttānakañhetaṃ, pessa, yadidaṃ pasavo.
