Jack the Gorilla – Part II

The local officials charged with the task of protecting endangered species would not give us a permit to transport Jack; they wanted a bribe. So we put the gorilla into a box and smuggled him to Yaounde in one of two working taxis in town. Multiple flat tires and battery failure meant a four hour journey took ten hours, and we weren’t sure that Jack had survived the trip when we finally reached the capital.
