Excerpt from the book :


"On July 6th, mechanics were repairing the chimpanzee yard. Carl-
ton chained Henry inside the monkey house, then shut the iron door
leading to the yard. All the noise coming from the workers sparked
Henry’s curiosity. He started messing with the door, which slid up and
down a small runway. Henry was able to lift it six inches and got to
see what was going on.

At noon, the crew retired for lunch and placed an electric drill on
their workbench. Henry noticed the noise had stopped and raised the
door. He looked around and saw the electric drill. He wanted the electric
drill. Henry lifted the door, tampered with it, and jammed it open.
He reached out as far as he could, but it was no good. After
thinking the matter over, he decided to enter the yard backwards. Henry
hooked the bench with his foot, and pulled it within reach. With all
his might, he stretched out his arm and grabbed the drill. It was now
his.

Henry loved playing with the drill, but he couldn’t get it to start
because the tool was unplugged. After another thinking session, Henry
turned the chuck by hand. The drill came alive in Henry’s hand.
Not known for slacking, he went straight to work. When the men got
back, they heard a familiar noise. They walked into the monkey house
and discovered the chimpanzee had a new play toy. He was boring
holes all over the place. Whether it was the floor or the walls, Henry
didn’t care.

The mechanics rushed to get help. Although Carlton was the only
person that the chimp trusted, Henry wasn’t going to give up his prized
possession. Carlton spent the next two hours trying to get the drill.
After losing the battle, Henry broke down into tears. He wailed and
cried as he approached his keeper. Carlton couldn’t resist and gave
him a hug. Henry reached around Walter’s back and snatched drill.
Before Carlton could react, Henry had rushed to the opposite corner.
The scenario played itself again. When Carlton retrieved it a second
time, he didn’t fall for Henry’s little trick. The saga finally ended."
