The Stolen Coins

Someone stole gold coins from a museum near the park. No one saw the thief take the coins, so there isn’t a description of the robber. Slylock Fox suspects one of the creatures in the park is the thief. Which one?

The raccoon on the seesaw couldn’t hold the heavier bear off the ground unless he was carrying something heavy. Since gold is one of the heaviest metals, Slylock suspects the raccoon is the thief and has hidden the coins in his clothes.

  1. i thought it to be the cat since the paint was dripping, and that wouldn’t have been the case if the cat and paint were a statue like the rest

  2. The whole point of a seesaw is to go up and down. Both push of with there feet and obviously you could assume that the photo just caught the raccoon on the decline after the bear pushed off with his feet and leg strength. I would question the turtle reading a desert news city newspaper in the middle of a town that is definitely not anywhere near a desert. And has plenty of space in his shell to hide it. Just saying this one isn’t very obvious and the turtle did it look at the tie and hat. He’s a washed up down on his luck salesmen who turned to a life of crime.

    1. Good for noticing the Desert News newspaper. You are correct, many of the detective puzzles can have several feasible answers. Their purpose is mostly to exercise your observational and analytical skills:)

  3. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout
    on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize
    it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today.
