Stop Press!

Mystery of munched melons solved!

After extensive investigations, the source of little bite marks and uneaten chunks of watermelon in the tummy mountain veggie patch has finally been bought to light. Initially, sleuths retained to uncover the diabolical marauder, thought that the criminal mastermind behind the spoiled fruit were a gang of notorious snails equipped with very little ladders. As it turns out a more ordinary explanation was forthcoming.

The investigators staked out the veggie patch, and in the morning light obtained the evidence that was needed by way of a series of incriminating photographs.

The evidence.

It appears that Wee Tiny was waking up early, wandering outside, and having a dawn snack in her pyjamas. Wee Tiny has not shown the slightest remorse for heinous crime of spoiling fruit. When questioned why she engaged in such activities she could only respond "yummy watermelon."

Even though remedial action is unlikely to work, the investigators were pleased that they cracked the case and made the front page news.
