This is the tenth puzzle you'll encounter in Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Patch. To complete the puzzle, you must determine the minimum number of horizontal lines needed for each animal to reunite with their mothers.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Why not start by helping the mother and baby that are the farthest away from each other?

Hint Two
    How many lines would you need to add to help the baby deer at the top-right reach its mother at the bottom-left?

Hint Three
    Continuing on from hint two...
    By adding four lines, you can reunite the two deer.
    Having done this, the only pairs not reunited are the bears and the birds.How many more lines do you need to add to bring them back together?

Super Hint
    Continuing on from hint three...
    With the deer still able to reach each other, add a horizontal line right at the bottom, joining the second and third lines from the left.
    Now everyone is reunited.
