Note: freed Count Congo, which made him depressed

Count Congo is an ape so large that it is kept in a cage which is said to take up all of Rhode Island and half of Connecticut! Count Congo actually enjoyed life in his cage. He received all the bananas he could eat. Life was tranquil. But Animal Rights activists said that he should not be "chained." The Animal Rights activists filed petitions with courts and lobbeyed for Count Congo to be freed and deported to a more "natural" habitat. They prevailed, and the gigantic ape was let free.

Count Congo became very depressed after this happened.

Fortunately for Count Congo a massive storm set him "free" from his "natural habitat freedom," and the huge ape ended up returned to his former captivity. He was then happy again.
