For many years citizens of America have lived in the technology hub of the Bay Area known as San Jose.  But only a select few people have knowledge of the ever-illusive I-280 beasts.  This beast’s formal name is known as Tonald Drump.  They live under the I-280 and the highway 87 junctions.  Tonald Drump is a rare cross-breaded mix of the Cape buffalo and the common San Jose Ground Squirrel.  It is the size of the average Golden Retriever (20-24 inches tall, and 55-75 lbs, depending on gender).  Members of the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) believed that this rare breed of Tonald Drump’s were developed from a small loan of  $1million and the intersecting migration patterns of the Cape Buffalo and the Ground Squirrel. 

The Drump beast is highly intelligent and uses its intelligence on distracting the Americans of San Jose on their commutes to work.  The Drump beast has found itself consistently on the daily news, with its nuisance acts.  Its most popular act was the Great Pet Heist of 1983, an attempt at stealing all the neighboring house pets, and releasing them on to highway 280.  According to the San Jose Animal Care Center, the Drump beasts were able to attain 127 housedogs, 348 cats, and 71 chinchillas and released them all at the 87/280 junction.  The California Highway Patrol reported that, it took police officers and animal control units 14 hours to clear the highway of all human and animal traffic.  The removal of the Tonald Drump animals is the number one priority of SJ Animal Care Center 2016 agenda.
