Ranger Tom here.
First off, I wanted to thank you all so much, from the very bottom of my heart, for helping out with those pesky insects. You saved our dinos!
Now... I got a bit of bad news.
Turns out our friend Isabelle wasn't quite the woman she claimed to be.
Does she love dinosaurs? Sure.
Does she think they're misunderstood? You betcha.
Was she attempting to create a super-race of dinosaurs to take over the world? Yup.
Did she kidnap her scientist ex-husband, Professor Preztige, and so he would give her information on how to achieve her goal? Yes. Yes, she did.
And finally, did she also kidnap your friend Walter Wattlesworth when he stumbled into the wrong room and figured out her plan? Mhmm.
Now, I know that's a lot of information to take in and you must be thinking to yourself: "Well, heck Tom, how'd you find this all out?"
Let me tell you, it wasn't easy.
I started suspecting Isabelle as soon as those insects showed up. I'd never seen anything like them before and I could tell from the get-go that they were man-made. Nothing natural about dino-hungry bugs. Isabelle seemed very angry and distraught about the bugs, understandably, but something she said made me very suspicious. At one point, when we were talking about the bugs, she said something along the lines of "He tricked me!" When I asked her what exactly she meant, she denied saying it altogether and became very defensive, which I thought odd.
When I did a little digging on Isabelle, I found out she had a less-than-amicable divorce from her scientist husband, a man you all apparently know by the name of Professor Preztige (I only heard him referred to by a name which I cannot repeat here.) Shortly after their divorce, wouldn't you know the man went missing! When I found that out, alarm bells started going off. I started staying at the park real late, poking around and trying to find out if Isabelle was indeed hiding anything.
Turns out she was hiding two grown men along with a plan to take over the world.
As soon as I found Professor Preztige and Walter locked up, the professor started talking. He told me about Isabelle's plan and how she was using him for information. Instead of complying 100%, the professor gave her slightly faulty information. When she asked how she could create blood-thirsty dinos, he told her how to create friendly, docile dinos. When she caught on, she was angry and threatened him if he didn't give her real info.
That's how Isabelle ended up with her precious giant egg. Isabelle was happy with her giant egg, but she wanted more. That's when the professor told her about the insects, how they'd make our friendly dinosaurs go crazy. Isabelle couldn't help herself. She created them herself without knowing that the professor's information was faulty. The bugs were really tranquilizing the dinos, though, which explains their sluggish demeanor. Not great for the dinos, but not as bad as what Isabelle wanted.
When I figured it all out, I knew I had to confront Isabelle and expose her. When I went to her office, it was empty, though. All empty except for a note:
"Take care of them for me. I'll be back. Oh, I'LL BE BACK! Muahahaha! -Isabelle."
I thought it was weird she wrote out an evil laugh, too.
Anyway, that about brings us up-to-date. I haven't the faintest clue where Isabelle could be, but I know I'll be taking care of these dinos myself for the foreseeable future and I'm perfectly fine with that. Under my care, these creatures will remain friendly and docile, just the way I've been raising them.
You're welcome back anytime, Rangers. I mean that.
Thanks again. Couldn't have done any of this without you.
All the best-
