|Based on a true story when I used to work at the zoo.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story warnings, both verbally from the keepers and staff and in sign form all over the ground, but in this case they were willing to make an exception. Suddenly, like a wave moving across the ocean water, all of the monkeys' attention shifted to the right. They saw all of the tasty treats littered on the floor. Not wasting any time, they went for it. At this time, a keeper made his way inside through a door at the base of the rock formation. He was carrying an empty trashcan. I didn't know what he was doing with a trashcan. He went to the child and placed the empty trashcan on top of him. Now he had to deal with the monkeys while in the dark. He dragged the trashcan with the kid underneath to the door out of the monkey pit. All the while the monkeys enjoyed their feast on the floor and devoured every last bit of food. The keeper made it out just as the monkeys finished. Later in the day, I found out what happened. The parents brought the child to the zoo for the day. They saw everything; the bears, the dolphins, the giraffes, even the giant cockroaches in the children's zoo. They got to the monkeys, the kid's favorite animal in the perpetuity of the universe. In fact he always saved the monkeys for last when he ate animal crackers. The kid wasn't tall enough to see over the rocks. His parents picked him up and stood him on the rocks. Well, the parents' grip on the kid must have slipped or something and the kid fell into the pit. Luckily, I found out later, the kid only bruised his bottom and it could have been a lot worse. It was a ten or fifteen feet drop to the bottom of the pit. I guess the kid will be eating the monkeys first in the animal cracker box so they won't eat him. Tweet
