Monkeys escaped from a private zoo near St. Petersburg. Staffers at the St. Petersburg Times show what you can do when you approach a story, from the beginning, with a storyteller's sensibilities and with determination to make the most of the story. And I'm talking words AND visuals.
Be sure also to read the linked story, "Monkey No. 15 met the wrong human." Again, this writer went in knowing he had a chance to get great material and knowing he'd try to make the most of it. I think he did a great job.
