Harry Ape robbed a bank yesterday and has been hiding in the bitterly cold forest. Max Mouse found Harry’s clothes near a hole in the pond ice. Why does Slylock Fox believe that Harry is nearby?
Slylock thinks Harry fell through the ice, and after climbing out of the water, took off his wet clothes due to the frigid temperatures. The sleuth suspects the ape is nearby because the wet clothes are still unfrozen.
