For once, operations at the enormous zoo/theme park appear to be running smoothly (except for the occasional herring-related mishap in the penguin exhibit) and Teddy Fitzroy is finally able to give detective work a rest. But then a local lion is accused of killing a famous dog--and the dog's owner, an inflammatory radio host, goes on a crusade to have the cat declared a nuisance so it can be hunted. However, there's evidence that the lion might have been framed for murder and now a renegade animal activist wants Teddy and his girlfriend Summer to help prove it -- and catch the real killer. And if that wasn't enough, someone has poisoned FunJungle's beloved giraffes and the parks' owner wants Teddy on the case. Now, Teddy finds himself wrapped up in the middle of his most bizarre, hilarious, and dangerous case yet.

Teddy Fitzroy lives with his parents next to FunJungle amusement park. Both of his parents work at the park, so Teddy spends a lot of time at FunJungle. Everything at the park seems to be running smoothly, for a change, until a wild mountain lion is accused of killing a famous dog. The evidence doesn’t really point to a mountain lion attack, so it seems there is a mystery as to how the dog died. The dog’s owner wants the mountain lion killed but they are protected as a local species. Then the dog’s owner goes on a verbal rampage on his radio show and insists that a hunting permit be issued for the mountain lion, so it can be killed. Teddy really doesn’t want to get involved in this mystery, but he also doesn’t want an innocent mountain lion to be killed.
