Hidden Animals

How many animals can you find in this story?

“Scram, you can’t catch me!” yelled the thief. While running to escape, his shirt skewered a box of nails. He ripped free, but skidded to a stop as he passed a policeman. He tried to run again, then cowered in fright. Crime doesn’t pay.

I found thirteen, listed in the order they’re found.

1. ram
2. ant
3. cat
4. ape
5. ewe
6. ox
7. kid
8. ass
9. man
10. nag
11. hen
12. cow
13. doe

Actually, the correct answer should be: 10!

“Man” is not an animal, and neither is an “Ant”?

Critters/creatures would have been more accurate, Dan!

LICE as in policeman would make the 14th hidden animal

If your going to use “man” from the word “policeman” then number 15 could be “police” might as well get two words from one, instead of just one.
