The zoo keepers seemed helpless as each day as they entered the zoo to
find the kangaroo had once again escaped his enclosure. Despite the zoo’
s tight budget, they decided they need to make the enclosure’s fence
taller, extending it to ten feet tall.
Certain this had solved the problem; they were shocked the next day to
find the kangaroo hopping down one of the zoo’s walkways.
“Let’s double the fence,” they said, adding another ten feet to the fence.
After successfully completing the fence, they went home for the evening.
But once again the following morning the kangaroo was waiting for
them near the front gate when the zoo keepers reported for work.
They returned the kangaroo to his home and began discussing how
much higher to make the fence.
The kangaroo listened intently all the while thinking to himself how silly
they were in their problem solving skills.
