This is the fifth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Bucky. In order to solve this puzzle, you must ferry all the animals across the river while avoiding fights between them.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    On the first trip, take two cats with you to the other side.

Hint Two
    Keeping those tabs on the cats is the key.

    After you take the cats on the first trip, take either the dog or the two chicks.

    The animals won't fight if you're with them on the riverbank.

    So, what do you do next?

Hint Three
    Each time you have a chance, take the two cats back and forth across the river, rather than leaving them with other animals.

    If they're on the raft or alone on the riverbank, the animals will never fight.

Super Hint
    On your first crossing, take the two cats. You can safely leave them there.
    Next, ferry the dog and one chick across the river. To prevent a fight, take the two cats back across the river with you.

    Then take the two remaining chicks, leaving the two cats behind.

    Finally, go back for the two cats!
