It all started on a nice sunny day last April.
All the kids in school were excited to be going to the zoo, but I was especially
excited. I love animals and picnics, and going to the zoo is having both at the same
At the zoo, we got to see different animals in their
cages and some of them were getting fed by their guards. Each of us had a favorite
animal, and mine was the Elephant.
It was all going well, until Sam decided to mess around with the lock on the
monkeys' cage and then...
all of the monkeys escaped! Before we knew it there were 34 monkeys running all over the
zoo. Our class, along with the guards, began running after them but by the time we
caught up with them it was too late! The monkeys were setting all of the other
animals free as well! Now there were lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) running all
over the zoo. Then just when we thought it couldn't get any worse, the animals all
turned on us and began locking us up in their cages!
It then began to get dark. I was getting
really worried. That is when our rescuers arrived! You see, at night time is
when the zookeepers feed the animals and clean the cages. The animals locked the
zookeepers up right away, but they forgot something very important - the zookeepers have
keys! We secretly had a meeting and came up with a plan to escape, and it
worked. We then put all the animals back into their cages. The animals were
very hungry and were glad to be back in their cages because they were not used to finding
food on the own to eat. They were grateful that the zookeepers fed them and cleaned
their cages. They promised not to ever escape again!
