By now you have probably heard the story of the 400 pound gorilla escaping the Buffalo Zoo long enough to bite a zoo keeper and have the SWAT team tranquilize and sedate it. koga gorilla orders custom wall plaque

What you probably did not here was what Koga the gorilla did in the short amount of time it was free from his cage.  Believe it or not Koga knowing how much press his escape was going to get found a computer, went online searched for "frame newspaper articles".  He found In The News Inc a company that professionally frames newspaper and magazine articles into custom wall displays and requested all his press be framed.

It truly was unbelievable :) lol. Koga then was sedated luckily no one was seriously injured.  Sure enough the stories started piling up now we where able to locate quite a few stories related to Koga and his escape. 

We mounted and preserved them onto our custom wall plaques and sent them to the gorilla on inspection.  He will be able to hang them up in his Zoo cage on a 10 day inpsection period.  If he is satisfied with the way the articles turned out he then authorizes payment. (he might try and put the Zoo up to pay for plaque we are not sure yet). 

If he has second thoughts on the purchase or does not like the custom frames for any reason he will have to escape from the Zoo again to call our customer service department and ask for a return shipping label.  Not that hard considering he already escaped once.  We would then authorize the return at no cost to Koga.
