  1. Spirit Cat and Ghost Cat leave, too. The after action reports can wait to tomorrow.
  2. "No, it can't be," Foxbat says just before Samantha takes him into custody. She then reads him his rights and asks him if he wants to say anything. "Yes," he says. “Look behind you, because that will be the front!” As she's about to get into her car, Samantha says to the heroes, "The gazelle had her baby. Mother and child are doing fine. The zoo veterinarian is staying with them for a bit to make sure everything's okay."
  3. "To exchange for Mickey Mouse's autograph," Foxbat replies as Ghost Cat and Spirit Car arrive.
  4. You finally find him at one of the zoo's playgrounds, riding its playground carousel. (These carousels, also called roundabouts, are muscle-powered.)
  5. "No, but thank you anyway," she replies, removing her vinyl-gloved hands. "The baby is finally in the proper position. Good hunting."
  6. "Haven't seen him," she says. "This young lady's about to give birth. Unfortunately, the baby started out in a breech position. If I don't get it turned the right way, there'll be problems. Plus, it may not be breathing on its own. If it isn't, I'll have to get it breathing. Fortunately, I have what I need in my bag and vehicle."
  7. She spots the doc's SUV on the grass. It's white with red lettering. Dr.McCauley's hands are inside the gazelle.
  8. Neither of the two men have seen him. "Claire McCauley might've, but I doubt it," says one. "She's paying attention only to the gazelle she's tending to." "She has a Ford Expedition," the other says. "It has the same lettering ours has, with one addition, the words, 'ANIMAL HEALTH'."
  9. Okay. The zoo is quiet, no surprise. It closed at 4 PM. However, zoo employees are still at work. One comments to another that Dr. McCauley is tending to a sick gazelle in the African Savanna area.
  10. "The zoo," Spirit Cat says. "It's in the northwestern part of Samuel Brackett City Park. The amusement park is in Southport, which is southeast of the city, across US 170 from here."
  11. "I don't know," Spirit Cat replies. "However, they have a carousel there, too, in the area they call "The Village" and there are two hand-powered ones in the playgrounds in the zoo's "Kids Kingdom". "There are also two at the 49er amusement park," Ghost Cat adds. "Of course, that ticket stud could've been dropped by anyone."
  12. Lady Heart is looking around the carousel when Cornerstone, Ghost Cat, and Spirit Cat arrive. They look around the area, too. In a nearby planter, Cornerstone finds part of a ticket to the San Angelo Zoo and Aquarium, which is located in nearby Samuel Brackett City Park. "Doctor Claire McCauley is their head veterinarian," Spirit Cat says. "She's appeared on The Mickey Mouse Club when the zoo is visited on Discovery Day to learn about animals."
  13. Neither can they. Samantha calls the Sheriff's Department's crime lab to examine Foxbat's vehicle, then radios for a patrol car to keep an eye on it while she takes Darlene to Saint Mary's General Hospital's Emergency Department. Once there, she notifies the county's Child Protective Services Department. Social Worker Paige Matthews gets sent to look into things. She stays with Darlene until her parents arrive, then gives them her card.
  14. "Okay," Darlene says as Samantha joins them, her badge in plain sight. After Darlene repeats what Foxbat said, Samantha says, "'What goes around makes me dizzy' could refer to the Samuel Brackett Plaza Carousel." "That plaza on the other side of the main building of Saint Mary's General Hospital, whose campus we're on," Ghost Cat adds.
  15. "No," Darlene says as Samantha parks her unmarked police car on Bellefield near where Foxbat's vehicle is.
  16. "I'm fine," she says. "Foxbat didn't hurt me. He did say, 'What goes around makes me dizzy'."
  17. Yes. You hear a siren behind you. Sounds like it's getting closer.
  18. Darlene's in the back, bound, gagged, and trying to free herself.
  19. It looks like Foxbat clipped the street light pole, but kept on going...only to crash into the traffic light pole on the other side. The front doors of the SUV are open, but there's no sign of him.
  20. Ghost Cat responds, "Understood. We're a block behind you. According to the satellite map app, there is a street light pole on Fifth near the corner, a traffic light pole at the corner, and a fire hydrant on Bellefield near the corner."
  21. Ghost Cat adds in, "Fifth Avenue has a bend in it between Dithridge Street and Bellefield Avenue. If Foxbat misses the turn, he could hit a utility pole of some kind or a fire hydrant."
  22. "Spirit Cat here. Lieutenant McDonald just pulled up in her police car. I'll be joining her and Ghost Cat." She pauses, then adds, "The only vehicles at the synagogue are the custodian's SUV and a clergyman's sedan."
  23. One says, "A vehicle, either a minivan or an SUV left the Allderdice parking lot in a hurry and didn't turn on its lights until it came to the corner." "It looked dark under the street light," the other says. "It was heading north on Fifth, toward Craig Street."
