“I told him not to do it,” said Tina. “I told him it was dangerous, but would he listen? Nooo!”
“How did he get there in the first place?” Asked Karen.
“He got help from Jerry and Lester and their gang. The little troglodytes probably encouraged him,” said Kate.
“How are you doing, Martin?” called Kate.
“It’s really uncomfortable down here,” wailed Martin. “Can’t you just pull me up?”
“Sorry Martin,” said Kate. “You’re too heavy. The park rangers are coming soon. They’ll get you up.”
Kate turned to Burt. “Burt! You’re good on your feet. Can’t you get to him?”
“Sure I can,” said Burt. “And then what? I could cut him free, but that would defeat the purpose.”
“Yeah, just cut him down,” grated Tina. “It would serve the fool right.”
“Tina, stop!” Commanded Kate. “Nobody’s cutting anybody down. We’ll just have to wait for the rangers.”
Below, animals everywhere gazed with fascination at the drama playing out above them.
“Do you think Martin will be okay?” Whimpered Jessica.
“Oh, he’ll be fine,” said Bart. “Just keep an eye out for the rangers.”
“Does anyone see them yet?” Said Martin in a plaintive voice.
“Not yet,” answered Bart. “Just hang in there. Help is coming.”
“I think I’m gonna puke.”
“Now settle down, Martin. Just relax.”
Bart sighed loudly. “What a mess. Honestly. Who ever heard of a bungee-jumping Rhino?”
