A Real Bad Racket
“Here’s something we know a bit about, Chet,” Bernie says, reading the paper. “Apparently this perp named Roberto Sol Cabrera was arrested at the Mexico City airport hiding 18 small monkeys in his clothing. Titi monkeys – an endangered species from South America – and two were already dead. All the monkeys were rolled up in socks and slung on a belt.” Bernie’s face got hard; that doesn’t happen often.
“Adrian Reuter, local representative for Traffic – an international organization that monitors wildlife trade – said animal trafficking is a serious problem in Mexico. Mexico, he said, is an important route for animal smuggling into the U.S.”
Bernie looks up. “We learned all about that racket, didn’t we, big guy?”
Hey! I remember. Down Mexico way! And that baboon! If I never see another baboon that will be just fine. I think he’s in To Fetch A Thief, unless I forgot to mention him.
Everyone here wishes Staff a speedy recovery. As for the quilt idea, we’re very very appreciative.
