Our story is about a man named Dale. Dale is a man of humble beginnings. Raised in a small town in Northeastern Nebraska, Dale was your average boy. He went to school, played baseball, rode his bike, and got into mischief as most young boys do. He was raised in a good family with all the love and care anyone could ask for.

To be fair, just, honest, and most of all to never give up. But there was always something that burned in him something that he couldn't place. A fire waiting for a spark.

Continuing to travel at the same speed and make the same maneuvers Dale was finally satisfied that they shook the cops. "Alright we either ditch the car or take it back." he said. "Well you know we have made it this far lets try and take it back without getting caught." Jim suggested.
"No we are leaving the car here." Dale replied.
"Well well well what do we have here?" an unpleasantly familiar voice said.
Dale hesitantly looked to the driver side window and it was as he had feared Sheriff Johnson. "You boys are in a heap of trouble, do you have anything to say for yourselves?" Dale looked at Jim then looked at the sheriff and said, "Yea… Peace." Then slammed on the gas.

It did not matter that apes are considered genetically close to humans – modern gorilla DNA is 97.7 percent the same as that of humans and modern chimpanzee and bonobo DNA are about 98.7 percent identical to humans.

While I thought that Peterson’s descriptions sufficed to help the readers see how apes were treated – dead or alive, the pictures were more shocking.
