For children and adults who like a fun challenge, the Hogle Zoo is the place to be at 10 a.m. today.

Sherlock Holmes will be among visitors at the zoo, where a mysterious wooden crate, in a hexagon shape and measuring 8 feet by 8 feet, will be under investigation by Holmes and other zoo visitors.The crate will be at the entrance of Discovery Land on the east end of the animal and bird park. Since arriving at the zoo, the crate has been emitting "strange noises." The crate has been sighted in several locations since June, but this is the first time audible sounds have come from the container, said Gina Phillips, events coordinator.

Zoo officials invite the public to help figure out the contents, which are "apparently restless and want out."
